ANTHOLOGY SERIES FEATURING STORIES FROM BLACK CREATORS HEADING TO SHUDDER

With the success of anthology series Creepshow (which is in it’s third season), horror streaming service has ordered a new anthology series which will feature original stories from black creators.

The untitled series, which is also set to premiere on AMC and AMC+ will showcase stories of Black horror from Black directors and screenwriters, the press release explains, and is set to premiere on Shudder later this year.

Writers attached to the project include Tananarive Due, Steven Barnes, Ezra C. Daniels, Victor LaValle, and Al Letson. Dr. Robin R. Means Coleman will be consulting on the series, along with Phil Nobile, Jr., Kelly Ryan, and Ashlee Blackwell.

One of the things that drew me to Shudder (besides my love of different genres of horror) was the documentary Horror Noire: The History of Black Horror.

It definitely enlightened me on so many things that I didn’t know in regards to the black communities contributions to the horror genre, and how black characters were treated throughout history in horror films.

After Jordan Peele released Get Out, I feel it’s box office success opened the door for many like Shudder, HBO and others to have enough faith in the fact that there is an audience of POC who love horror and would like to see horror stories featuring a diverse group of people told on the big and small screen.
