Blumhouse has acquired the rights to adapt Deborah and Jessica Moffitt’s viral paranormal story



Variety can exclusively reveal that Blumhouse has acquired the screen rights to Deborah and Jessica Moffitt’s viral paranormal story and upcoming book manuscript, “Mr. Entity: The Moffitt Family Haunting.”

The Moffitt family’s story captivated audiences after Jessica published a 2022 article detailing their hauntings by a supernatural presence known as “Mr. Entity.” From the late 1980s to the early 1990s, the Moffitts were terrorized by a supernatural spirit, which they kept hidden from everyone except paranormal experts.

Blumhouse will develop an unscripted series with ITV America’s Good Caper Content through Blumhouse Television based on the Moffitt story for narrative television and film.

One of the best examples we’ve seen of truth being stranger than fiction is Mr. Entity’s story. We’re grateful to Deborah and Jessica Moffitt for allowing us unrestricted access to their stories and for entrusting us to tell them in rich detail in this first iteration as an unscripted series with our partners at ITV America’s Good Caper Content.

Added Alison Dammann, Senior Vice President of Content Development at Good Caper The Moffitts’ unusual family history and mysterious experiences leave plenty of room for speculation.

We feel well-equipped to unravel the complexities of this bizarre and breathtaking story, thanks to Good Caper’s background and approach to investigative storytelling, as well as the incomparable team at Blumhouse Television.
