While looking for his wife, Wake begins to experience supernatural occurrences and event plots from the novel he is working on. He has no prior memory of writing the material.
The title took five years to develop and was created by Sam Lake. Now, Lake has signed on as executive producer for a television adaption of the story. Additionally, Remedy Entertainment announced on Twitter that Peter Calloway (Legion, Cloak and Dagger) will also work on the project.
We're really excited to work with Contradiction Films and have @PeteCalloway on board for developing the Alan Wake TV series. It's early days yet, but... Sam's already brainstorming. https://t.co/ttxnn4q8ns pic.twitter.com/6EdFpMIcgE-- Remedy Entertainment (@remedygames) September 12, 2018
It is worth remembering that the show still needs to be picked up, and according to Variety, Calloway will begin shopping it around for an interested party in October.
Those who have played the original game will recall that it is structured like a TV mini-series, being split into episodes with plot twists and cliffhangers.
