FEARnet has set premiere dates for its Twisted Comedy block, including its first original scripted series Holliston as well as the second season of the returning fan favorite, Todd & The Book of Pure Evil.
Holliston, from Adam Green (Hatchet, Frozen), makes its official debut on FEARnet television Tuesday, April 3 at 10:30 p.m. ET, with a special sneak preview event hosted by Green and co-star Joe Lynch (Knights of Badassdom, Wrong Turn 2), on Sunday, April 1. Todd & The Book of Pure Evil makes its explosive second season return on March 13, 2012 at 10 p.m. ET. Alex House as Todd, Maggie Castle as Jenny, Bill Turnbull as Curtis, Melanie Leishman as Hannah, Chris Leavins as Atticus and Jason Mewes as Jimmy the Janitor all return for the sophomore stretch of the series.
Season two of Todd & The Book of Pure Evil will also be available on FEARnet On Demand, FEARnets Free VOD service starting March 14, 2012, with season one becoming available as of March 6. Holliston will be available on the VOD service as of April 2, 2012. Both series will have additional content available at FEARnet.com.
Holliston stars Green and Lynch, along with Corri English (Unrest), Laura Ortiz (The Hills Have Eyes), Dee Snider and Oderus Urungus (GWAR). The regular cast will welcome a bevy of guest stars and celebrity cameos during its first season. Upcoming guest appearances include:
“Audiences will simply love our spring Twisted Comedy line-up, said Peter Block, president, FEARnet. Weve worked tirelessly to find the perfect pairing for Todd & The Book of Pure Evil. Holliston will have people laughing, cringing, reveling in all of the genre references, and possibly taking misguided advice from the foulest-smelling alien advice-giver ever featured on series television (yes, Im looking at you, ALF). I cant wait for everyone to see it.
Described by its creators as The Big Bang Theory meets Evil Dead II, Holliston shines a light on the post-college life where everything is a struggle, and nothing works out like its supposed to, with terrifyingly funny results as Adam and Joe struggle to become big-time horror filmmakers and make ends meet.
