News Jennifer Tilly Confirms “Chucky” TV Series Involvement: “I’m Going to Be a Part of It” Published 7 days ago on February 11, 2020 By Nick Bond Share Tweet Child’s Play franchise writer/creator Don Mancini will direct the pilot episode of the “Chucky” television series, which was recently picked up by the Syfy network. And today we have official word that franchise actress Jennifer Tilly will be a part of it. RELATED: ‘CHILD’S PLAY’ TV SERIES “CHUCKY” PICKED UP AT SYFY FROM DON MANCINI While speaking with Page Six, Tilly said: “I’m so excited. Chucky is very near and dear to my heart. All over the world, everywhere I go, I step off a plane to a country I didn’t even know existed, and they know one word, and that word is ‘Chucky,’ and they want a hug. Don Mancini, who created the Chucky 30 years ago is the writer on this series, so it’s the original Chucky. His partner is Nick Antosca, who did ‘Channel Zero,’ which is just a chilling anthology of horror stories, so a little bird told me that I am going to be a part of it.” In the new “Chucky” television series, “after a vintage Chucky doll turns up at a suburban yard sale, an idyllic American town is thrown 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.” David Kirschner, Nick Antosca, and Harley Peyton are on board the project as executive producers. Stay tuned for more updates.
