Michael Bay’s Cop Drama ‘Occult’ Headed to A&E

A&E is getting into the Michael Bay business. No, there won’t be any big explosions (or maybe?), but the network has just picked up a cop drama titled ‘Occult’ from Bay’s Platinum Dunes banner. Can we expect something a little spookier, perhaps?

THR reports that A&E has picked up ‘Occult,’ a new cop drama from Platinum Dunes producers Michael Bay, Andrew Form, and Brad Fuller. James Wong penned the script for the pilot, which follows an FBI agent who has returned from leave following the mysterious disappearance of his wife. He’s paired with a new female partner, but she comes with some serious baggage and has an extensive background working with cases that are related to the occult. The two of them are tasked with heading up a new division that will primarily focus on the occult (obviously).

Wong wrote ‘Final Destination’ and has worked on ‘American Horror Story,’ the kooky-creepy FX drama from Ryan Murphy (‘Glee,’ ‘Nip/Tuck’). ‘Occult’ doesn’t seem like too big of a departure from his previous work, so we’re hoping for something similarly bonkers here.

Bay has been getting in the TV business lately with Platinum Dunes producing the pirate drama ‘Black Sails’ for Starz and another drama titled ‘The Last Ship’ in the works at TNT.
