The Exorcist

Sky Media is offering a brand the opportunity to sponsor a modern  slick reinvention of the horror classic ‘The Exorcist’, airing exclusively to Syfy this October

The Opportunity

Widely regarded as the greatest horror movie ever made, The Exorcist broke box office records and terrified audiences around the world. Now, more than four decades after the Academy Award®-nominated film, The Exorcist returns as a  glossy high impact TV series.

About the Show

Directed by Rupert Wyatt (Rise of the Planet of the Apes), The Exorcist is a propulsive psychological thriller following two very different priests tackling one family’s case of horrifying demonic possession.

Father Tomas Ortega (Alfonso Herrera: Sense8, The Chosen) is the new face of the Catholic Church; progressive, ambitious and compassionate. He runs a small but loyal parish in the suburbs of Chicago. He has no idea that his quiet life is about to change forever. Meanwhile, on the other side of the world, another priest finds himself locked in a life-and-death struggle with evil.

Father Marcus Brennan (Ben Daniels: Flesh and Bone, House of Cards) is a modern-day Templar Knight, an orphan raised since childhood by the Vatican to wage war against its enemies.
