Leading US content firm Starz has announced the series development of Trapped, in association with Mila Kunis' Orchard Farm Productions.

The half-hour horror comedy series takes places over a single night in the home of a wealthy family under attack by a murderous cult.

Kunis will serve as executive producer alongside Rob Zombie, who will also direct. It was created and written by Joey Slamon (Arrested Development).

"We're excited to work in partnership with Rob Zombie as well as Mila Kunis and her Orchard Farm Productions associates Susan Curtis, Cami Curtis and Lisa Sterbakov on this horror comedy series," said Starz managing director Carmi Zlotnik.

Starz will retain all domestic and international multi-platform rights including television, home entertainment and digital. The premium network has been focused on steadily expanding its original content proposition.
