For television, Blumhouse is working on both scripted and non-scripted shows including projects for Syfy (Ascension), MTV (Eye Candy), ABC and Mike Darnell. Blumhouse previously executive produced the Emmy nominated and Critics’ Choice award winner The Normal Heart for HBO, Stranded for Syfy and The River for ABC. Blumhouse’s upcoming micro-budget wide releases include Ouija and The Boy Next Door for Universal and the next chapter in the Insidious franchise for Focus Features. Whiplash with Sony Pictures Classics, which won both the Grand Jury and Audience prizes at Sundance, will be out this fall.
