While Joe Carnahan continues to mull over which one of the many feature film projects he wants to direct next, it looks like he’ll be getting involved in helming another network drama, following the premiere this week of "The Blacklist." CBS has tapped him to direct their drama series project “Angel Time,” which is based on characters from Anne Rice’s “The Songs of the Seraphim” novel series.

While Joe Carnahan continues to mull over which one of the many feature film projects he wants to direct next, it looks like he’ll be getting involved in helming another network drama, following the premiere this week of "The Blacklist." CBS has tapped him to direct their drama series project “Angel Time,” which is based on characters from Anne Rice’s “The Songs of the Seraphim” novel series. Josh Harto and Liz Garcia, the creators of the short-lived TNT show “Memphis Beat,” adapted the Anne Rice novels. “Angel Time” takes place in New Orleans and centers around Toby O’Dare, “a soulless assassin with a tragic past” who finds himself on a path towards redemption. 

In other TV-related news, as his latest film “X-Men: Days of Future Past” enters post-production, Bryan Singer has recently decided to dip his toes back into television. The filmmaker, along with his Bad Hat Harry Productions outfit, will produce a drama series for the Syfy channel entitled “Creatures at Bay.” John Cabrera wrote the 90-minute pilot script, who you may know as the co-creator of the award-winning web series, “H+,” which Singer produced.

“Creatures at Bay” takes place after the U.S. military has successfully taken down a giant “Kaiju” monster just off the Northern California coast. A middle management Undersecretary from the California Emergency Management Agency has been tasked with cleaning the town up, a town which has been the focus of the entire world. The Syfy channel, lately, has been known to dabble in the monster-movie/disaster genre as of late, much to the amusement of hate-watchers everywhere. Hopefully Bryan Singer, along with his production team, can give us something a little more substantial, even if it just sounds like "Pacific Rim: The Series." [Deadline]
