Based on the book by Christian McKay Heidicker. Her production company Peephole Productions, which struck a first-look deal with Boat Rocker Studios last year, will produce with the company’s Kids & Family division.

“Scary Stories for Young Foxes is the coming-of-age tale of two young foxes, born of different families, whose youthful misfortunes bring them together. The eight interconnected stories explore the power of scary tales, why we tell them, and how we react to them.”

Heady said in a statement:

“During our first meeting at Boat Rocker I was asked what I was interested in, and we started talking about horror for kids, how there is a space for this, and not to shy away from putting stuff out there that’s dark and smart. Kids aren’t daft — they know when we’re holding back the scary bits, so I’m so happy to be part of a great team to bring Christian’s book to life in a way that feels authentic.”

Bob Higgins, EVP Content, Boat Rocker Studios, Kids & Family added:

“We’re thrilled to have the immensely talented Lena and Peephole Productions be a part of what we see as a true family classic based on this incredible, scary and heartfelt novel.” Jon Rutherford, President, Boat Rocker Studios Kids & Family, added, “Lena’s participation in this project further bolsters our strong slate of leading Kids & Family titles designed for global audiences.”

Executive producer McKay Heidecker also said:

“I’m beyond thrilled at the prospect of Mia and Uly romping onto TV screens to chill a wider audience with the importance of scary stories. I was worried that my book would be declawed — the scariest bits removed for sensitive viewers — but I’m convinced that Boat Rocker Studios and the gravitational Ms. Headey will elevate this project to a place of spooky sophistication.”

Headey and Christian McKay Heidecker will exec produce with Boat Rocker Studios and Untitled Entertainment.
