Last year it was announced that The Walking Dead executive producer and makeup effects guru Greg Nicotero is teaming with horror streaming service Shudder for a TV series based around George A. Romero and Stephen King’s 1982 anthology horror Creepshow. And now, to mark the end of production on the first episode of the horror anthology series, Nicotero has shared a first-look image featuring The Creep!
“Having the opportunity to embrace the spirit of Creepshow and expand on what George A. Romero and Stephen King created is, without a doubt, a lifelong dream come true,” Nicotero previously stated about the series and his involvement. “Having grown up in Pittsburgh, Creepshow lives in a special place for me. I had the good fortune to visit the set as a teenager. I was able to look behind the curtain of filmmaking, and it changed me forever. I’m honored to continue telling the stories in the ‘comic book come to life’ world that fans fell in love with. This fall we will be ‘opening the coffin’ and unleashing upon the world our demented and ghastly stories, crafted by the best in business.”
Creepshow is slated to premiere on Shudder later in the year, and will feature stories from the likes of Stephen King, Joe Hill and Joe R. Lansdale.
