‘Ameri-Scares’ Books Being Developed as a Family-Friendly Horror Anthology TV Series


Margot Robbie and her LuckyChap Entertainment are teaming with Assemble Media and Warner Horizon to develop Elizabeth Massie’s “Ameri-Scares” book series as a family-friendly horror anthology, this according to Deadline.

The series is being developed for television or streaming service and would have “a road-trip spirit” with each episode taking place in a different state and centered around local legends or spooky historical events, much like the current book series.

“With Ameri-Scares we saw the perfect opportunity for us to delve into the horror space, and tell the kind of unique and scary stories we used to tell each other around the campfire or at sleepovers as kids,” Robbie and her company said in a statement.

To date, Massie has released eight of her planned 50 “Ameri-Scares” novellas that each tells of a historical event, folktale, legend, or myth unique to that particular state: California, New York, Virginia, Tennessee, North Carolina, and Maryland were all written by Massie, with Michigan and West Virginia, being written by Steven Mark Rainey.
