The project, from writer Mark Kruger (The 4400) and film producer Michael Aguilar, was originally developed as a feature, which serves as inspiration for the potential series. It centers on a troubled family desperate for a fresh start that takes over a Napa Valley winery whose ancient vines possess dangerous mystical powers. UMS is producing with Aguilar's Dos Tontos banner and OZLA Pictires; Aguilar, Nakata and Kruger are executive producing the project, which marks both Nakata and Aguilar's U.S. TV debut. Nakata directed the original Japanese movies Ring and Ring 2 as well as the Hollywood sequel The Ring Two and another Japanese movie that got a Hollywood remake, Dark Water. Kruger is with WME and Madhouse.
