Principal photography has begun in Conyers, Georgia for Mario Van Peebles' upcoming supernatural drama, Superstition. It's 12-episode season will debut on Syfy this fall.
Additional cast members have also been announced. Starring alongside Van Peebles are Robinne Lee, Brad James. W. Earl Brown, Demetria McKinney, Diamond Dallas Page, Morgana Van Peebles, as well as newcomers T.C. Carter and Tatiana Lia Zappardino.
The series revolves around the Hastings family, who own the long-running funeral home and graveyard in La Rochelle. In addition to providing services for all faiths, the family specialty is handling “afterlife care” for the unexplained deaths of folks at the hands of demonic Infernals, and other unworldly phenomena that have long haunted the town. Over the years, the Hastings have developed a skill set in the dark arts to help combat this regular “Infernal problem” of La Rochelle. The family uses arcane weaponry, brute strength, mystical alchemy skills, and a deep knowledge of the occult and ancient lore from around the world to quell the evil within the shadows of the town.
The show is produced by Barry Gordon, Mario Van Peebles and Mitchell Galin. Joel Anderson Thompson is the co-creator and showrunner, and Laurence Andries is executive producer.
“This is a golden age for great television, and I look forward to doing some of the most creative, exciting and boundary-pushing work of my career,” said Mario Van Peebles.
Netflix has acquired rights to the show outside of the United States.
