Harrow County was among the first titles identified under Universal Cable Prods.’ first-look deal with Dark Horse Entertainment announced in July. The project has now been set up at Syfy with Becky Kirsch tapped to write the adaptation.

On the eve of her 18th birthday, she learns that she is connected to these creatures and to the land itself in a way she never imagined, for she is the reincarnation of a powerful witch who was put to death on the very day Emmy was born. For this reason, the townsfolk mean to kill her too. In order to survive, Emmy must embrace the unusual powers at her command.
Kirsch has emerged as one of Syfy’s go-to writers. She worked on the network’s Dominion and Twelve Monkeys before being drafted for Harrow County. She is repped by ICM Partners and manager Carel Cutler.
