A Creepshow TV series has been rumored for years and now fans will be able to watch the new series on Shudder. The Walking Dead’s Greg Nicotero will direct the first episode, executive produce and oversee the show’s creative elements. Each episode will tell a new story and will be directed by a different director.
Creepshow is slated for a 2019 release on Shudder.
“Creepshow is one of the most beloved and iconic horror anthologies from two masters of the genre, George A. Romero, and Stephen King,” said Shudder general manager Craig Engler, who made the announcement. “We’re thrilled to continue their legacy with another master of horror, Greg Nicotero, as we bring a new Creepshow TV series exclusively to Shudder members.”
Nicotero, who met his mentor, makeup legend Tom Savini, while visiting the set of Creepshow and who later worked with Romero on Day of the Dead and Creepshow 2 added, “Creepshow is a project very close to my heart! It is one of those titles that embraces the true spirit of horror…thrills and chills celebrated in one of its truest art forms, the comic book come to life! I’m honored to continue the tradition in the ‘spirit’ in which it was created.”
The Creepshow TV Series on Shudder will be produced by The Cartel with Monster Agency Productions, Taurus Entertainment, and Striker Entertainment.
“The Cartel is excited to bring the iconic Creepshow brand to Shudder as a series,” said Cartel CEO Stan Spry. “There is no better person to be the creative force behind this new production than Greg Nicotero. His experience and leadership will ensure that the series is of the highest quality and will help to excite horror fans around the world.”Striker Entertainment.
