Mark Duplass Sets Adaptation of TV Series ‘The Creep Tapes’

2 Min Read

‘Creep’ creeps back.

Duplass Brothers Productions has completed filming “The Creep Tapes,” a TV series based on the Netflix films “Creep” (2014) and “Creep 2” (2017). The project was produced independently without a distributor attached; CAA now handles worldwide sales.

According to the official description, the series is based on a collection of video tapes in the secret vault of the world’s deadliest and most socially awkward serial killer, who hires his victims to film him for a day under false pretenses. Each episode features a new victim from one of the legendary ‘Creep Tapes.’

Mark Duplass co-wrote the original films with Patrick Brice, who served as director. On “The Creep Tapes,” Duplass and Brice serve as co-creators, with Brice directing all episodes. Chris Donlon serves as editor and executive producer, while Duplass, Jay Duplass and Mel Eslyn produce.

“The Creep Tapes” is one of several TV projects that Duplass Brothers Productions independently financed and produced before looking for a buyer. In response to the demise of Peak TV, the company has opted not to seek production funding from larger studios, instead creating their own shows and working on short-term domestic licensing deals that give them control over their intellectual property.

“Test it on your service. If it is successful, we could be rewarded with a longer license,” Duplass said in an interview with Variety. “If not, we didn’t let you take too much risk. I can sell in eight other areas around the world to get back to financial health.
