Clive Barker’s Weaveworld Is Going to Be a CW Show, and My Head Is Exploding


I guess the partnership makes some sort of sense – both Barker and the CW share a love of hot guys with perfect abs. I just have trouble seeing the insane amount of world-building that happens in every Barker book get translated in a coherent form to the network.

In the TV adaptation, an app designer teams up with a young pastry chef who has just discovered that destined to be guardian of a mythological realm that can be accessed through a portal in an old Savannah mansion.

App designer. Sigh.

Said portal had better actually still be a carpet, though. Or else we can conclude that the folks making the show don’t even understand the book’s title. Waiting to see Clive Barker get adapted correctly is a true mix of pleasure and pain, as it’s great to see it happen but terrifying to see how it could go wrong…hey, maybe that’s his plan all along. Cenobite style S&M on my fanboy emotions. Well done, sir.
