The first cast member announced for the upcoming CHUCKY TV series is none other than Oscar and Emmy nominated Brad Dourif! He will supply the voice of deranged serial killer “Chucky”.
Dourif originated the voice of the character in the original 1988 Child’s Play movie and its six sequels, which are all part of the Chucky-verse. Don Mancini (Hannibal, Channel Zero), who penned the entire franchise, serves as the showrunner and creator of Chucky. David Kirschner (Hocus Pocus, Frailty), who produce the films in the franchise, will also serve as producer of the series.
The new series will air on Syfy and USA Network. In the series plot, a vintage Chucky doll turns up at a suburban yard sale and throws an idyllic American town into chaos as a series of horrifying murders begin to expose the town’s hypocrisies and secrets. Meanwhile, the arrival of enemies — and allies — from Chucky’s past threatens to expose the truth behind the killings, as well as the demon doll’s untold origins as a seemingly ordinary child who somehow became this notorious monster.
