New US Kaiju TV Series Coming from X-Men Director to Syfy


Syfy just might have a new hit on their hands. A kaiju series called, Creature at Bay. Brian Singer, the director of X-Men, and his Bad Hat Harry Productions is developing a 90 minute pilot that involves an attack on a small town in Northern California and the clean up efforts that follow. From the sound of it, we might not be looking on mech on monster action a la Pacific Rim, but more closer to something like Cloverfield the TV Series, but who knows? The pilot is being written by John Conbrera who co-wrote the fantastic H+.

Here’s the pitch:

Creature At Bay is set in the wake of the US military taking down a giant, rampant creature — a modern-day “Kaiju” monster – just off the Northern California coast. A middle-management Undersecretary from the California Emergency Management Agency is charged with leading the clean-up efforts as the small town becomes the focus of the entire world.

    you had me right up to the point when you said Cloverfield, guess I will have to watch and see

  • Jim Radcliffe

    Is the giant hero in the picture going to be part of the show?

  • Zachary Ortiz

    Unless the military uses giant mecha or a giant alien hero to fight the kaiju with, I’m not interested. Cloverfield suck Smog Monster ass.

  • Hughes Scott Crawford

    The picture is from Monsterpocalypse, it was a mini’s game. It was actually pretty fun though. One set of rules allowed you to throw buildings at your enemies.

  • Jim Radcliffe

    Ah, thank you

  • Tendou

    look’s like gonna be like Megaloman or Ultraman for the hero who fight againts the kaiju !

  • xero42

    considering i LIVE in a small town in south carolina this is potentially REALLY good news

  • William Cash

    I think that’s just a random graphic they found to accompany the article – no sentai or tokusatsu heroes according to the piece.

  • RandomPerson

    It’s just about the clean-up after the disaster? I’m sorry guys, but unless they’ve a lot more in store and that’s just a shitty pitch, this won’t last a season, if it even gets picked up for a series.

  • Brian Buck

    Cloverfiled was brilliant. So this sounds like it has potential. As long as we get lots of monster action.

  • RandomPerson

    From the way that pitch was worded, you’re gonna be veeeeery disappointed

  • Battra

    This is going to be on SyFy, well I guess it’s already doomed to cancellation.
