STORY LINE: THE GIRL IN THE WOODS is a supernatural half-hour drama set in a small mining American town whose woods hold a dark secret: a door to a monster dimension. And the only thing stopping the horror from escaping are three teenagers who've bonded together to fight back. In the tradition of BUFFY or HANNAH, the series follows a title character, CARRIE, who has escaped a mysterious religious community, where she was trained to fight monsters. Thematically the show examines how tribes bind and break us, and how tragedies can unlock superpowers. This Peacock series is based on the Crypt TV short film, which has been viewed over 25MM times.
