AMC is bringing ‘Creepshow’ series to its streaming service


AMC Networks’ Shudder is prepping to bring Creepshow to its streaming service, with Greg Nicotero in charge.

Creepshow will soon be a part of AMC Networks’ Shudder, their premium streaming service, and The Walking Dead’s Greg Nicotero is going to direct, executive produce, and be in charge of the show overall. Creepshow is based on the anthology film which was written by the infamous Stephen King and directed by George Romero. The series is set to premiere in 2019.

The original 1982 film starred Leslie Nielsen, Hal Holbrook, Ted Danson, and Adrienne Barbeau inspired two sequels and even a comic book spin-off. The producers involved in bringing Creepshow to the small screen promise that it will live up to the original film’s tagline, “The Most Fun You’ll Ever Have Being Scared.”

Every episode of the anthology series will have a different director and tell a unique and scary story. Nicotero will direct the first episode of Creepshow and his award-winning company, KNB EFX Group Inc., will be doing all the visual effects/makeup for the show.

The general manager of Shudder, Craig Engler, conveyed his enthusiasm for taking on this project and what it means to the company to take part in it.

"“Creepshow is one of the most beloved and iconic horror anthologies from two masters of the genre, George A. Romero, and Stephen King, We’re thrilled to continue their legacy with another master of horror, Greg Nicotero, as we bring a new Creepshow TV series exclusively to Shudder members.”"

Nicotero is close to the project because he met his makeup mentor on the set of Creepshow and later worked with Romero on multiple projects including Day of the Dead. He is excited to take on the tradition of the movie and bring it to the series.
