Thriller/Horror script development house announces several new feature film projects and makes surprising leap into television comedy and sci-fi arenas HOLLYWOOD, Calif., Sept. 25, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Screenwriter and company founder, Mylo Carbia, will announce the script development houses' new slate of projects at the Screenwriters World Conference this weekend in Los Angeles, CA.

Despite being known mainly for developing thriller/horror projects - a genre that has been recently setting box office records - Carbia maintains her excitement about the decision to branch out into relatively new territory.

"Writing thriller and horror screenplays will always be my first love. However, I started as a playwright writing comedies early in my career, and really enjoy the camaraderie that comes along with working with a team of individuals that make you laugh out loud."

Of those projects slated for development, three feature-length films are in line with Zohar's thriller/horror tradition including Black Acre - the story of a public relations guru hunted down by a psychotic woman he wronged in the past; Yoruba, a historical horror film set on a slave ship in 1745, and Daughters of Marie Laveau, a paranormal horror film based on some of Carbia's own childhood experiences growing up in a haunted house.

However, the two most unexpected projects are Dear Luna - a television comedy series that follows the life of an aging "gold-digger turned author" and Z.O.O. - a sci-fi thriller about a woman abducted by extra terrestrial beings only to find they are creating a zoo from earth.

The company is set on creating projects aimed at a variety of production budgets ranging from micro-budget financing, to a studio-backed feature ideal for summer popcorn audiences.

As such, Zohar Films will be looking for full-production and distribution partners to help bring these projects to audiences worldwide. For more information about the company, please visit: http//
