Monstropolis is a new horror drama written Patrick Melton and Marcus Dunstan, the duo behind Saw IV and Saw V. The1280px-Marcus_Dunstan__Patrick_Melton show, which is being produced by Aaron Kaplan, has been grabbed up by ABC after a lengthy bidding war and has received a huge put pilot commitment. A “put pilot” guarantees that it will air on-network or could result in a penalty to the studio.

In Monstropolis, monsters are real, living amongst the humans in the city of New Manhattan (aka Monstropolis). But now someone is killing monsters, and it is up to one disgraced detective to stop the killer… or become the next victim.

No other information has been released about Monstropolis as of yet, but Melton and Dunstan are currently working on Halloween Returns, with plans for Dunstan to direct.
