Syfy Orders ‘Superstition’ from Mario Van Peebles

Thirteen Episodes Ordered

Syfy has given a 13-episode straight-to-series order to “Superstition,” a supernatural show from Mario Van Peebles’ newly launched production company MVPTV and XLrator Media. “Superstition,” which begins production early in 2017, centers around the Mosley family, owners of the only funeral home in a fictitious town on the outskirts of New Orleans and keepers of the town’s dark secrets and history. Known for its haunted houses, elevated graveyards, odd townsfolk and rich history of unusual phenomena, the town is also a “landing patch” for the world’s darkest manifestations of fear, guided into the world by an ancient, mysterious malefactor named The Dredge.

Joel Anderson Thompson (“Battlestar Galactica”) is set as showrunner, with Laurence Andries (“Alias,” “Six Feet Under”) on board as an executive producer.
