It’s only 20 seconds long and Damien (played by Bradley James) is seen in the shadows, but this first teaser trailer for the upcoming horror series Damien effectively puts across a creepy vibe. The new series is based on The Omen and will arrive on A&E next year. In addition to James the cast includes Barbara Hershey, Omid Abtahi, and Meganlyn Echikunwoke.
The Walking Dead‘s Glen Mazzara is on board as a writer and executive producer along with Ross Fineman and Pancho Mansfield. Shekhar Kapur directed the first episode.
Damien follows the adult life of Damien Thorn, the mysterious child from the 1976 motion picture who has grown up seemingly unaware of the satanic forces around him. Haunted by his past, Damien must now come to terms with his true destiny — that he is the Antichrist. Barbara Hershey stars as Ann Rutledge, the world’s most powerful woman who has been tasked with making sure Damien fulfills his destiny. Omid Abtahi portrays Amani Golkar, a close colleague of Damien’s whose fierce loyalty will be tested when he realizes who his brother-in-arms actually is. Meganlyn Echikunwoke plays Simone Baptiste, a woman whose life is thrown into turmoil when tragedy unexpectedly strikes.
