Tricia Helfer, David Arquette and More Join Creepshow Series

-

Tricia Helfer (Battlestar Galactica), David Arquette (Scream franchise) and Dana Gould (Simpsons writer) have joined the cast of the upcoming reboot of the series Creepshow. They’ll join cast members Adrienne Barbeau, Giancarlo Esposito and Tobin Bell. In addition, horror legend Tom Savini who did makeup on the original film is set to direct an episode called “By the Silver Waters of Lake Champlain.”

The horror series is based on the iconic 1982 anthology film written by Stephen King and directed by George A. Romero. The six-episode season will feature an adaptation of an as-yet unannounced Stephen King story, as well as segments based on stories by other award-winning and acclaimed horror writers

“There wouldn’t be a Creepshow without Tom Savini,” said showrunner Greg Nicotero (The Walking Dead). “His mark on the horror industry and unflinching approach to special effects makeup did more for the genre than anything since the invention of fake blood. Tom has always been a visionary and his love of cinema and making movies is felt in every frame of his episode. I’m honored to have my friend as a big part of the team.”

Helfer will star in “Lydia Layne’s Better Half,” about a woman who denies a promotion to her lover and protege with consequences. Arquette will star in “Times is Tough in Musky Holler,” about a small town whose leaders once ruled through intimidation and now get their comeuppance. Gould will star in “Skincrawlers,” about a man who considers a new weight-loss treatment that has unexpected complications.

The series will have six episodes with two stories in each episode. It will premiere on AMC’s Shudder later this year.
