The Hollywood Reporter has revealed NBC are going ahead with an exorcism drama series for television– but it has no affiliation with William Peter Blatty‘s original story or the mini-series he has written for TV.

The Possession of Maggie Gill is being written by John Glenn (Eagle Eye) and produced by Amblin Entertainment.

THR also notes:

Exorcism dramas are a hot subject matter this development season.  The Walking Dead creator Robert Kirkman is adapting his exorcism comic, Outcast, as a pilot at Cinemax; and former Walking Dead showrunner Glen Mazzara’s Damien, a follow-up to The Omen, received a straight-to-series six-episode order at Lifetime.

A shame Blatty’s mini-series isn’t part of this mix. Maybe there’s still hope?
