Charleston, South Carolina is an elusive city with many faces and the perfect home for Maria Abascal (Mena Suvari, “Chicago Fire”), a stunning, 30-year-old demon-hunter-for-hire. Alongside her brother, David (Zachary Booth, “Keep the Lights On”), she is skilled and fearless in her pursuit of the demons that live in others. Like those that she hunts, Maria is divided within herself, struggling with her own demon, Abigail, who resides inside of her, feeding on the evil Maria exorcises from others. Maria and Abigail share a soul and a destiny, but as Maria desperately tries to overtake Abigail, she will discover how far Abigail will go to remain a part of her.
The cast also includes: Bill Irwin (“CSI”) as Enos Abascal, Maria and David’s father and cult leader; Drew Moerlein (“V/H/S”) as Dusty, Maria’s neighbor; Lamman Rucker (“Meet the Browns”) as Rev. Elijah Bledsoe, a priest with a strong attraction to Maria; Paulina Singer (“How to Make It In America”) as the Reverend’s daughter, Grace; Lydia Hearst (“Cabin Fever: Patient Zero”) as southern belle Charlotte Roberts; Slate Holmgren (“The Amazing Spider-Man 2”) as the local drug dealer, Sweetmouth; and Lauren Velez (“Dexter”) as Tetra, a spiritual informant.
“South of Hell” is produced by Sonar Entertainment and Blumhouse Television. The premiere episode was written by Matt Lambert. James Manos, Jr. (“Dexter,” “The Shield,” “The Sopranos”) is executive producer and showrunner. Jason Blum of Blumhouse Productions (“Paranormal Activity,” “Insidious,” “Sinister”) also serves as executive producer, along with Gerard Bocaccio, Stewart Till, Gene Stein, Erica Motley and Eli Roth.
In addition to Roth, an array of respected directors shepherded individual episodes of “South of Hell,” including Ti West (“House of the Devil,” “The Sacrament”), Rachel Talalay (“Doctor Who,” “Tank Girl”), Jennifer Lynch (“The Walking Dead,” “Teen Wolf”) and Jeremiah Chechik (“Helix,” “Reign”).
