When FEARnet’s upcoming original series, Holliston, debuts on Tuesday, April 3rd, it’s going to break the mold of the usual sitcom format.
“While we only did six episodes, each episode is ‘monster size,'” creator Adam Green tells Shock Till You Drop. “Each episode is really the equivalent of two. A traditional sitcom might be between 21 and 24 minutes without commercials and our episodes between 35 and 45 minutes. It’s like an extended episode each week. And what was cool about that is we were able to fit in more guest stars, more gore moments and more of everything.”
The director of Frozen and Hatchet co-stars in the series with Joe Lynch (Knights of Badassdom, Wrong Turn 2). The two play Holliston, Massachusetts locals who run their own public access horror program and aspire to be filmmakers. Corri English and Laura Ortiz play their girlfriends. Dee Snider, Oderus from GWAR, Tony Todd and many others pop up for this blend of humor and horror.
