SyFy is a network that has been known for producing different television shows that have a more science fiction and fantasy leaning. However, this time around, it looks like the network will be expanding its genre to projects that are more horror related, as the it has been reported that the network is currently developing a horror anthology show. Read on to learn more about this brand new show from SyFy.
Variety reported that SyFy, a network long known for producing projects rooted in science fiction and fantasy, is leaning more towards the horror genre as it is currently developing a horror anthology program entitled “Channel Zero” with Max Landis and Nick Antosca.
As this will be an anthology show, much like “American Horror Story”, every season will be telling a different story.
The first season of the series will be entitled “Channel Zero: Candle Cove.” It will be written by Nick Antosca, and will be directed by Max Landis.
“Candle Cove” is based on a story which its author, Kris Straub, based on the horror story internet thread and a phenomenon called “creepypasta.”
The first season will center around a mysterious and terrifying children’s show called “Candle Cove,” which aired in the 1980s. It actually contained the dark secret to several horrific murders that occurred during that time.
Both Landis and Antosco have promised that the end result will be “surreal and haunting.”
This is the latest project in SyFy’s latest campaign to have more scripted dramas, and to return back to its roots. As of the moment, “Channel Zero” joins other programs in development and other currently running shows such as “Bitten,” “Defiance,” “Dominion,” “Childhood’s End,” “Hunters,” “Killjoys” and “Dark Matter.”
