News Shudder and Greg Nicotero to Resurrect ‘Creepshow’ With New Anthology Series Published 5 months ago on July 18, 2018 By Nick Bond Share Tweet A Brand New Creepshow anthology series is coming from team up duo Shudder and director/executive producer Greg Nicotero. Fans of the beloved 1982 horror classic Creepshow, written by Stephen King and directed by George A. Romero, will be excited to hear that a brand new anthology series from Shudder and Greg Nicotero is on its way. Shudder, AMC Networks’ premium streaming service for thriller, suspense and horror, today announced it has greenlit a new Creepshow TV series with “The Walking Dead’s” Greg Nicotero attached to direct, executive produce, and supervise the show’s creative elements. The original Creepshow was an iconic anthology film that featured stories written by Stephen King and directed by George A. Romero, with stars like Ted Danson and Adrienne Barbeau. It’s an enduring favorite among horror fans that spawned two sequel films and a spin-off comic. Shudder general manager Craig Engler made the announcement. “Creepshow is one of the most beloved and iconic horror anthologies from two masters of the genre, George A. Romero and Stephen King,” said Engler. “We’re thrilled to continue their legacy with another master of horror, Greg Nicotero, as we bring a new CreepshowTV 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 new Creepshow anthology series, scheduled to debut on Shudder in 2019, will fulfill the promise of the original film’s tagline “The Most Fun You’ll Ever Have Being Scared.” Each episode of the anthology series will tell original fun and scary stories, and will be helmed by a different director, with Nicotero directing the first episode and his Oscar® and multiple Emmy® award-winning company KNB EFX GROUP Inc. handling the creature and make-up fx. Shudder’s Creepshow will be produced by the Cartel with Monster Agency Productions, Taurus Entertainment, and Striker Entertainment: Stan Spry, Jeff Holland, and Eric Woods are executive producers for the Cartel; Greg Nicotero and Brian Witten are executive producers for Monster Agency Productions; Robert Dudelson, James Dudelson and Jordan Kizwani are executive producers for Taurus Entertainment; and Russell Binder and Marc Mostman are co-executive producers for Striker Entertainment. “The Cartel is excited to bring the iconic Creepshow brand to Shudder as a series. There is no better person to be the creative force behind this new production than Greg Nicotero,” said Spry. “His experience and leadership will ensure that the series is of the highest quality and will help to excite horror fans around the world.” How damn cool is that?
