A TV series based on Resident Evil is in development by Mance Media, Bloody Disgusting has discovered.

Tentatively titled Arklay - that's where you'll find the Arklay Mountains, Mansion and Laboratories - the scripted series is the creation of Shawn Christopher Lebert and aims to explore the homicides of Raccoon City.

The pitch reads: "When Detective James Reinhardt is thrust into a series of bizarre homicides, he unravels the city is hiding a dark conspiracy. Learning a fatal virus is connected to it all, Reinhardt discovers it's already coursing through him. With time no longer on his side, he must solve the conspiracy to save his own life."

To help sell the idea Mance Media has created a pitch reel using footage from other media (including Hanibal). The video is for adults only.
