News The Legendary Robert Englund to Host Travel Channel’s New Series “Shadows of History” Published 11 months ago on April 10, 2019 By Nick Bond Share Tweet The legendary Robert Englund is set to host Travel Channel’s new series “Shadows of History“, which features some of the most bizarre and mysterious accounts printed in American newspapers over the years. RELATED: ROBERT ENGLUND IS BACK AS FREDDY KRUEGER IN “THE GOLDBERGS” TV SHOW We have all the juicy details for you in the official press release below. Veteran actor and legendary horror movie icon Robert Englund (Freddy Krueger of the beloved A Nightmare on Elm Street franchise) resurrects the frightening, odd and creepiest stories ripped straight from the headlines of yesteryear in Travel Channel’s new series “Shadows of History” (wt). Newspapers from America’s past document bizarre, mysterious accounts that seem too incredible to be true. With the help of historians and scholars, Englund makes every one-hour episode an immersive experience designed to raise goose bumps and quicken pulses. And every thrill ride is all the more terrifying because it isn’t the work of a science fiction writer, but originally a news article reported in the American press. The six-episode series will air later this year. “How can you make fascinating and petrifying stories even more scary? Add the genius of Robert Englund,” said Jane Latman, general manager, Travel Channel. “As if tales of flying monsters, zombie cannibals and ghost ships were not enough, we are cranking up the volume for maximum impact. And our fans are going to go nuts for this legendary actor.” “Shadows of History” (wt) is produced by Workaholic Productions for Travel Channel. For Workaholic, Luke Ellis is the executive producer. For Travel Channel, the executive producer is Daniel A. Schwartz, Jane Latman is general manager and Henry Schleiff is group president of Investigation Discovery, Travel Channel, American Heroes Channel and Destination America.
