Daniel Dae Kim is bringing a spooky new show to Amazon. The actor/producer is working with the streaming platform on a supernatural series called “Tether,” The Hollywood Reporter reports.
“Tether” follows the ghost of Madelyn Woods, who is tethered to the house where she was murdered. She embarks on a mission to save her kidnapped husband and son, while exacting revenge on her murderers.
The series is part of a first-look deal Kim’s production company, 3AD, signed with Amazon Studios. He will serve as executive producer of the series alongside 3AD head of development John Cheng.
Kevin Hamedani and Travis Betz will serve as executive producers, showrunners and writers, according to Deadline.
“Kevin and Travis have an incredible topical voice that uses narrative storytelling and genre to disrupt and illuminate. They have a purposeful strength in subverting expectations, showcasing unrepresented characters and worlds,” Tara Bohn of 3AD said in a statement, according to Deadline. “As in Tether, they write about average people who consider themselves good, inclusive, and even progressive, who still fall prey to their own fears and prejudices.”
Hamedani and Betz have become known for their “Walking Dead” spin-off script “The Saviors.”
It is unclear when production on “Tether” will begin. Kim announced that the show was beginning preparations on his Instagram account.
“Good things coming,” Kim wrote. “Excited to team with you, Travis and Kevin!”
