The CW adds Two Sentence Horror Stories to its summer lineup
This summer The CW is shaking up its lineup with the addition of the horror anthology series Two Sentence Horror Stories. The show will consist of eight singularly themed half-hour episodes set to debut August 8 at 8:00-8:30 p.m. and 8:30-9:00 p.m. ET/PT.
Contemporary tales of horror and haunting for the diverse and digital age. Inspired by the viral fan fiction of two sentence horror stories, this anthology series taps into universal primal fears, filtered through the anxieties of the most connected and racially diverse generation. Despite dizzying advancements in technology, inequality, social progress, and environmental degradation…the things that haunt us are still the same.
The series was created by Vera Miao (Best Friends Forever), who also serves as executive producer and will direct two episodes. Tayarisha Poe, Rania Attieh, Daniel Garcia, Natalia Lyudin and Nikyatu round out the other directors.
The cast includes Nicole Kang (Batwoman), Jim Parrack (The Deuce), Aleyse Shannon (Charmed), Greta Quispe (New Amsterdam), Wai Ching Ho (The Defenders) and Kate Jennings (Notorious).
