Like those that she hunts, Maria is divided within herself, struggling with her own demon, Abigail, who resides inside of her, feeding on the evil Maria exorcises from others.”
The series was penned by rookie writer Matt Lambert and showrunner James Manos Jr. of The Shield. Jason Blum (Insidious), Gerard Bocaccio, Stewart Till, Gene Stein all serve as executive producers. South of Hell’ is scheduled to make its debut on WE tv in 2015. Production on the thriller is currently underway in Charleston, South Carolina.
