Shudder takes peek at Creepshow

Horror-focused US SVoD service Shudder has greenlit an anthology series in collaboration with The Walking Dead exec producer and director Greg Nicotero.

1982’s Creepshow

Creepshow will feature scary yet fun stories, with each weekly episode helmed by a different director. The show is based on the 1982 anthology film of the same name, which featured stories written by Stephen King and was directed by horror legend George A Romero.

Debuting on AMC Networks-owned Shudder in 2019, Creepshow will be produced by The Cartel, a feature film and television production, management and financing company, with Monster Agency Productions, Taurus Entertainment and Striker Entertainment.

Nicotero will direct the first episode and will serve as executive producer for Monster Agency alongside Brian Witten. Stan Spry, Jeff Holland and Eric Woods will exec produce for The Cartel, Robert Dudelson, James Dudelson and Jordan Kizwani will exec produce for Taurus, and Russell Binder and Marc Mostman will co-exec produce for Striker Entertainment.

Announcing the series, Craig Engler, general manager of Shudder, said he was pleased to be bringing back one of the “most beloved and iconic horror anthologies” to TV.

Creepshow’s announcement follows on from Shudder’s recent acquisition of the exclusive streaming rights to horror series Channel Zero from Universal Cable Productions.
