Here's a synopsis: The Diabolic centers on a broken but brilliant exorcist who falls in love with a single mother with a young son possessed by an ancient entity with diabolic intentions that not only threaten the boy, but the very fate of mankind.
Oldman and Urbanski will produce with Josh Weinstock. This is Oldman and Urbanski's first TV project. They previously produced The Contender, which co-starred Oldman.
John Morayniss, CEO eOne Television; Michael Rosenberg, eOne EVP U.S. Scripted Television; and Becca Tesarfreund, eOne Manager, Scripted Formats and Co-Productions, will oversee the project for eOne TV. eOne will also handle worldwide distribution.
