A TV series based on the Creepshow movie series (1982-2006) is in the pipeline.
According to Entertainment Weekly, subscription-based streaming service, Shudder is reviving the movie series for television. Creepshow will take on the format of individual stories to create an anthology show.
The Walking Dead‘s Greg Nicotero is on board as director, executive producer and supervisor. The Cartel, Monster Agency Productions, Taurus Entertainment, and Striker Entertainment will produce.
In a statement, Shudder General Manager, Craig Engler, said:
“Creepshow is one of the most beloved and iconic horror anthologies from two masters of the genre, George A. Romero and Stephen King.” He added: “We’re thrilled to continue their legacy with another master of horror, Greg Nicotero, as we bring a new Creepshow TV series exclusively to Shudder members.”
Creepshow is currently scheduled to hit Shudder in 2019.
