This February 20 sees EPIX premiere a brand new contemporary sci-fi horror series, “From” which is created and executive produced by John Griffin (Crater), directed and executive produced by Jack Bender (“Lost”, “Game of Thrones”), and executive produced by Showrunner Jeff Pinkner (“Fringe”, “Alias”, “Lost”).
Already praised by the master of horror himself, Stephen King, and boasting a stellar ensemble cast headed up by Harold Perrineau (“Lost”), Catalina Sandino Moreno (Maria Full of Grace, “The Affair”), Eion Bailey (“Band of Brothers”, “Once Upon a Time”), “From” unravels the mystery of a nightmarish town that traps all those who enter. As the unwilling residents fight to keep a sense of normalcy and search for a way out, they must also survive the threats of the surrounding forest – including the terrifying creatures that come out when the sun goes down.
In anticipation of the series bowing on Epix this Sunday in the United States (the series will be exclusively distributed by Netflix outside of the US), SCREAM caught up with three of the series regulars, Perrineau, Sandino Moreno and Bailey who discussed getting caught up in a town in middle America that traps all that enter it and Perrineau also revealed that Jack Bender and Jeff Pinker initially had no intention of casting anyone from “Lost” so as to keep and semblances between the two shows to a minimum.
