Ahead of the show’s panel at the San Diego Comic-Con later today, AMC’s Shudder streaming service has debuted the Creepshow trailer and a premiere date of September 12. Based on the iconic 1982 film written by Stephen King and directed by George A. Romero, the horror anthology series comes from the mind of The Walking Dead executive producer Greg Nicotero.
Consisting of six episodes with 12 segments, Creepshow stars David Arquette, Adrienne Barbeau, Tobin Bell, Big Boi, Jeffrey Combs, Kid Cudi, Bruce Davison, Giancarlo Esposito, Dana Gould, Tricia Helfer, and DJ Qualls.
Shudder’s new Creepshow series follows in the footsteps of the iconic 1982 horror classic written by Stephen King and directed by George A. Romero, famously billed as “the most fun you’ll ever have being scared!” A considerable number of contributors to the new series have ties to the film and its 1987 sequel: the series will feature adaptations of a story by King as well as one by his son, Joe Hill, who fans will recall played comic-book loving “Billy” in the original film’s wrap-around segments.
Also returning to the Creepshow franchise are actor Adrienne Barbeau; director Tom Savini, who created special effects makeup for the film; writer/director John Harrison, who was 1st Assistant Director on the original and composed its famous theme; and showrunner Greg Nicotero, who visited the first film’s set as a teenager and contributed make-up effects to Creepshow 2.
Shudder’s Creepshow is produced by the Cartel with Monster Agency Productions, Taurus Entertainment, and Striker Entertainment: Stan Spry, Jeff Holland, and Eric Woods are executive producers for the Cartel; Greg Nicotero and Brian Witten are executive producers for Monster Agency Productions; Robert Dudelson, James Dudelson and Jordan Kizwani are executive producers for Taurus Entertainment; Russell Binder is executive producer and Marc Mostman co-executive producer for Striker Entertainment.
