Sulphur Springs, a live-action mystery series from writer and executive producer Tracey Thomson (The Young and the Restless), has been greenlit by Disney Channel.
The 11-episode series follows 12-year-old Griffin Campbell, whose family has just moved to a new town with plans to restore an abandoned hotel that’s rumored to be haunted by the ghost of a girl who had long ago disappeared. With his new classmate Harper, Griffin uncovers a secret portal that allows them to travel back in time where they’ll find answers to the mystery.
Sulphur Springs stars Preston Oliver (Chicago Fire) as Griffin and Kyliegh Curran (Doctor Sleep) as Harper, as well as Elle Graham (Swamp Thing), Kelly Frye (Criminal Minds), Josh Braaten (American Horror Story), Landon Gordon (Coop & Cami Ask the World) and Madeleine McGraw (Outcast).
Chuck Pratt will serve as showrunner and executive producer, while Jennifer Phang directed the pilot episode of Sulphur Springs. The series is a production of Gwave Productions.
Jonas Agin, VP of original series for Disney Channel, said: “Sulphur Springs is a truly genre-bending mystery that will help re-define the types of stories we tell on our network. It’s a chilling, heartfelt, funny adventure that we can’t wait for our audience to tune into.”
