I’m the Grim Reaper centers on Scarlet, a young woman who wakes up in the ninth circle of hell with no idea how she got there. Satan offers to send Scarlet back to Earth if she’ll work as his reaper. But it doesn’t take long for Scarlet to realize that Satan’s offer is even worse than she feared. The story slots perfectly into Raimi’s wheelhouse, striking a deft balance between scares, gore and humor.

Campbell & Stuecken sold their procedural The Interpreter to NBC last season, with Michael Peterson showrunning and Morris Chestnut attached to star. This season, they sold Borrowed Time to Fox with McG attached to direct and David Slack showrunning. On the feature side, Campbell & Stuecken have John Woo’s The Killer in post-production at Peacock and are scripting an untitled horror thriller for The Hideaway. The duo are repped by Verve and attorney Nick Marell.

Wattpad Webtoon Studios was founded in 2019 as a fan-driven studio harnessing popular IP from the online publishers Wattpad and Webtoon to create content for film and TV with a built-in audience.
