[Video] “Chucky”: First Promotional Image and First Teaser Footage Has Been Released for Don Mancini’s ‘Child’s Play’ TV Series!



[Video] "Chucky": First Promotional Image and First Teaser Footage Has Been Released for Don Mancini’s ‘Child’s Play’ TV Series!

Entertainment Weekly and the SyFy Network have simultaneously released an exclusive look at Don Mancini’s Child’s Play TV Series today, debuting both a new promotional image and our first glance at Chucky in action in a short 20-second teaser video.

While speaking with EW today, Mancini revealed:

The main character is a 14-year-old gay boy who’s bullied and sort of lost after the recent death of his mother. He’s a young artist [making] sculptures with doll parts. He finds Chucky at a yard sale and buys him, but it turns out that he gets much more than he bargained for.

He went on to tease a big showdown:

I deliberately ended Cult of Chucky on a series of cliffhangers, major cliffhangers, because I knew a TV series would be the ideal place to accommodate delving into the ramifications. So we begin the series introducing our new story, our new milieu, and then we start to bring the veteran characters into the story, and it all comes together for a big showdown.

Mancini also revealed that Chucky’s look in the series is precisely based on his appearance in John Lafia’s Child’s Play 2:

Over the years, I’ve heard that the consensus fan favorite among all the movies is Child’s Play 2. I think one of the reasons for that is how Chucky looked in that movie and how the late director John Lafia, who passed away last year, shot Chucky. Our goal with the series was to bring Chucky’s look precisely back to that. Tony Gardner and Peter Chevako (special effects artists responsible for creating the show’s puppets) have done a great job. I think fans are really going to love that.

Finally, Mancini added that we could be seeing more Chucky adventures in both film and TV:

We have plans to (make more movies), whether in lieu of additional seasons of the series, or in tandem with (them), potentially. We’re creating a broader Chucky universe with the TV series that now could span over different media.

The series begins when:

“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.”
