We've heard quite a few bizarre premises over the years - particularly when it comes to the horror genre - but this one might just take the f*cked up cookie.

Deadline reports that a new comedy horror series titled The Nightbeast is in the works from Leah Rachel (Chambers) and Travis Jackson (Hemlock Grove), with the pilot being developed for Amazon MGM Studios.

Tatiana Maslany (She-Hulk: Attorney at Law, Orphan Black) is set to star as a woman who begins a sexual relationship with... the Bogeyman!

Per the official logline, The Nightbeast follows a young mother who is “unsatisfied with her seemingly perfect suburban life begins an affair with the boogeyman in her son’s closet — a surprisingly sexy man called the Nightbeast. But this harmless affair she thought to be a figment of her imagination begins to have unexpected consequences, as her two worlds increasingly begin to collide in this seductive, darkly comedic tale.”

Further details - including potential production start and premiere dates - have not been disclosed, but we do know that executive producers on the project are Peter Warren, Justin Levy, Fred Berger and Brian Kavanaugh-Jones (Station26, A Range Company), Kristen Campo (Campout) and Jamie Babbit, who will also direct the pilot.

As for She-Hulk, despite rumors that Marvel Studios is working on a second season, Maslany herself cast serious doubts on the show returning for another run during a recent interview. “I don’t think so. I think we blew our budget, and Disney was like, ‘No thanks.’”

She-Hulk received overall positive reviews and was reportedly one of the streamer's more popular Marvel shows with general audiences, but it's fair to say that it wasn't every MCU fan's cup of tea. Though some were fully on board with the show's brand of humor, others found it way too silly, and many felt the season finale, in particular, left a lot to be desired.

Even head writer Jessica Gao admitted that the team struggled to come up with an appropriate ending during a 2022 interview.

"We really, really struggled with the finale. We started off doing a lot of versions of the finale that were much more just like straight and very, very Marvel movie, you know, and it just never felt right for us to just end in a big set piece fight, and take out the bad guy, and it just always felt like, ‘Oh, it’s a different show now.’"
