It wasn’t long ago that Rob Zombie announced he was taking a break from the horror genre, but thankfully those plans were put on hold. Though he is stepping outside his comfort zone with an upcoming Groucho Marx biopic, he’s got Halloween horror film 31 on the way, and that’s not all…

Deadline reports today that Starz (the network responsible for Ash vs. Evil Dead) is currently developing a half-hour horror comedy series called Trapped, which is being executive produced by Rob Zombie and actress Mila Kunis (Black Swan). Best of all, Zombie is also attached to direct.

Created and written by Joey Slamon (Arrested Development), Trapped takes place over a single night in the home of a wealthy family under attack by a murderous cult.

Orchard Farm’s Susan Curtis, Cami Curtis and Lisa Sterbakov also executive produce.

We’re excited to work in partnership with Rob Zombie as well as Mila Kunis and her Orchard Farm Productions associates Susan Curtis, Cami Curtis and Lisa Sterbakov on this horror comedy series,” Starz Managing Director Carmi Zlotnik said.
