Further expanding its slate of dramatic programming, Dynamic Television has acquired the worldwide distribution rights for AMC Networks’ Shudder’s new Creepshow series.

creepshow 10OCt2019The renowned horror franchise follows in the footsteps of the iconic 1982 horror classic film written by Stephen King and directed by George A. Romero. The (6x60’ and 12x30’) new anthology series premiered last week on premium streaming video service Shudder in the US. Inspired by classic comics including Tales from the Crypt and The Vault of Horror, the 1982 Creepshow film was an instant critical success and became the #1 box office.

From writer and director Greg Nicotero (The Walking Dead), the new Creepshow series features 12 chilling tales of terror and stars David Arquette (Scream franchise), Adrienne Barbeau (The Fog), Tobin Bell (Saw franchise), Big Boi (a.k.a. Antwan Patton), Jeffrey Combs (Re-Animator), Kid Cudi (a.k.a. Scott Mescudi), Bruce Davison (X-Men), Giancarlo Esposito (Better Call Saul), Dana Gould (Stan Against Evil), Tricia Helfer (Battlestar Galactica) and DJ Qualls (The Man in the High Castle).

The new series will also feature adaptations of a story by King as well as his son Joe Hill who played comic-book loving Billy in the original film’s wrap-around segments. Also returning to the Creepshow franchise are director Tom Savini, who created the special effects makeup for the film; writer/director John Harrison, who was first assistant director on the original and composed its famous theme; and showrunner Greg Nicotero, who visited the first film’s set as a teenager and contributed make-up effects to Creepshow 2

The new Creepshow series is 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.
