A supernatural soap opera involving mystical ancient vines on a Napa Valley wine estate is currently being developed by the NBC network in the US.

Japanese director Hideo Nakata – the man behind cult horror movie The Ring – is being slated as a possible producer or director of Vines, which revolves around a troubled family in search of a new life together.

The family moves to a Napa Valley winery, only to find that its vineyards are populated by ‘ancient vines with dangerous mystical powers’.

The project, originally envisaged as a film, has already attracted producers Michael Aguilar (co-producer of Martin Scorsese’s The Departed) and Taka Ichise (who worked on The Ring with Nakata), as well as writer Mark Kruger.
