A new Creepshow television series is coming to Shudder later this year and production has officially begun, according to producer Stan Spry and confirmed by a share from the official Twitter account for the show. Spry shared on Instagram a photo of him arriving at the series' production office and later posted on Twitter a story from TVweb announcing the beginning of production.
Spry is producing in association with Cartel Pictures and is joined by executive producer and presumed showrunner Greg Nicotero, who will be spending some time in the director's chair as well.
It was recently revealed through Production Weekly that one such episode being directed by Nicotero is titled Survivor Type and will be an adaptation of a short story featured in Stephen King's 1985 collection, Skeleton Crew, which told the story of a disgraced surgeon who gets stranded on a desert island. Below is the reported synopsis.[pullQuote-0]
