SyFy have just put out this trailer for the next instalment of their ongoing horror anthology series Channel Zero. Entitled Channel Zero: Candle Cove, the new 6-episode series premieres on October 11th.
Based on Kris Straub’s short ‘creepypasta’ story (user-generated, viral horror stories), Candle Cove follows a man who has some sinister memories of a strange children’s program he watched in the ‘80s. Obsessing over his recollections, he develops an increasing suspicion that the show played a part in a string of terrible and tragic events from his childhood.
The Boy helmer Craig William Macneill directs all six episodes, with Nick Antosca (Hannibal) acting as showrunner, having also written the pilot episode. He also executive produces alongside Max Landis (Victor Frankenstein, Chronicle). Harley Peyton (Twin Peaks) is a writer and co-executive producer, with Child’s Play creator Don Mancini serving as a writer and supervising producer.
Channel Zero: Candle Cove stars Parks and Recreation’s Paul Schneider, Harry Potter’s Fiona Shaw, Shaun Benson (Home Sweet Home), Natalie Brown (Dawn of the Dead, The Strain), and The 100’s Luisa D’Oliveira.
