McG Will Direct & Exec Produce ABC Family's 'Shadowhunters' Series; Says He'll Honor 'Mortal Instruments' Fans

On a scale from one to ten, how excited are you about the Mortal Instruments series Shadowhunters coming to ABC Family?

Via EW, it was just announced that McG will serve as executive producer on the project and will at least direct the pilot.

Speaking with the mag, he also opened up about keeping true to the books and the fans of the series. Check it:

On how he’s keeping the fans in mind: “I think it’s exciting. My style is to be open and communicative and talk about what we can and can’t do with the realistic parameters of television. But I think everybody’s expectations of television is so high now with Game of Thrones, and there’s such excellence out there that we plan to recognize that and take it even higher. So I find it empowering and encouraging. I take it very seriously, and I’m doing a great deal of listening.”

On if he’ll be following the books close: “The mythology is very much in keeping with the book. I look at the television format for the fans to engage evermore deeply in the stories and the characters because you have more hours to parcel out the story itself. So I think that’s an exciting opportunity. If I’m honest, I find myself more and more excited about what’s going on in the TV space than most of what is going on in a theatrical space. I mean maybe four or five movies a year really change my life and there’s got to be 20 or 30 television shows that I think are absolutely extraordinary. I feel like most people feel that way.”

'Mortal Instruments' TV Show 'Shadowhunters' Lands at ABC Family!

While the movie sequel may never see the light of day, Mortal Instruments fans have reason to be excited!

ABC Family has ordered a television series titled Shadowhunters, based on the bestselling young adult fantasy book series by Cassandra Clare.

The show will follow 18-year-old Clary Fray, who finds out on her birthday that she is not who she thinks she is but rather comes from a long line of Shadowhunters human-angel hybrids who hunt down demons. When her mother Jocelyn is kidnapped, Clary is thrown into the world of demon hunting with mysterious Shadowhunter Jace and her best friend, Simon.

Now living among faeries, warlocks, vampires and werewolves, Clary begins a journey of self-discovery as she learns more about her past and what her future may hold.

“I’m excited to see ABC Family bring the world of the ‘Shadowhunters’ to life. As a huge fan of long-form television drama, I can’t wait to see the story unfold and for the fans to have more time with the world and the characters,” Cassandra said in a statement.

Shadowhunters will begin production this May in Toronto, Canada. The cast will be announced at a later date.
