Sonar Entertainment will produce the drama, which the ‘Glee’ grad will create and direct.
Chris Colfer is plotting his return to TV.
The Golden Globe-winning Glee grad is teaming with Sonar Entertainment to develop sci-fi drama Indigo, The Hollywood Reporter has learned.
The drama, which Colfer created as a starring vehicle for himself, explores the mysterious world of Indigo children — those who are misdiagnosed but wildly believed to possess extraordinary paranormal abilities — and the dark forces working to exploit their powers.
Colfer will pen the script for the potential pilot and is expected to direct it as well. Keith Quinn and Colfer’s manager Rob Weisbach also exec produce alongside the actor.
A network is not yet attached but the plan at the moment is to shop the project to broadcast, cable, premium and streaming services.
For Colfer, Indigo would mark his return to series regular television following his six-season run as Kurt Hummel on Fox’s Ryan Murphy/Brad Falchuk/Ian Brennan phenomenon Glee.
In the years since Glee wrapped, Emmy-nominee Colfer — who also penned a season five episode of the Fox musical — has remained busy as an author. His New York Times best-selling children’s series The Land of Stories has been translated into 20 languages. He also had his book Struck By Lightning adapted into a feature film which he wrote, starred in and produced. He previously had a deal with Disney Channel to adapt The Little Leftover Witch for the small screen.
For Sonar, meanwhile, the independent studio has multiple TV series in the works including season two of MTV’s The Shannara Chronicles, AMC’s Pierce Brosnan drama The Son, David E. Kelley’s adaptation of Stephen King’s Mr. Mercedes for the Audience Network; and also serves as a distributor on FX’s Tom Hardy vehicle Taboo, among others.
Colfer is repped by ICM Partners, Rob Weisbach Creative Management and Myman Greenspan.
