An official new interview has popped up featuring Creepshow executive producer Greg Nicotero, who will also serve as showrunner for the upcoming Shudder TV series. In the video, the producer, director, and special effects extraordinaire talks about how much this opportunity means to him and reflects on a few highlights from his memorable career thus far. It's not a long watch, but it's an interesting one nonetheless. Check it out above and read on for more details on the show.
Twelve segments in total will make up the Creepshow series' six-episode debut season, with eight of the stories having been revealed so far. The tales being adapted include Joe Hill's By the Silver Water of Lake Champlain, Bird Box author Josh Malerman's House of the Head, Joe R. Lansdale, Kasey Lansdale and Keith Lansdale's The Companion, Christopher Buehlman's The Man in the Suitcase, Bruce Jones's All Hallows Eve, John Esposito's Night of the Paw, and Rob Schrab's Bad Wolf Down. It was also reported that an episode called Survivor Type would be included, based on a short story from Stephen King's 1985 collection, Skeleton Crew.
The Walking Dead executive producer Greg Nicotero will serve in a similar role for this series, taking on overall showrunner duties as well. Much like his time on the AMC zombie drama, he will be behind the camera in the director's chair for select episodes as well.
Creepshow will arrive on Shudder sometime this fall, but no exact date or release schedule has been revealed at this time. Stay tuned to Dead Entertainment for all the latest news and updates on the series.
