Boulet Brothers Announce Halfway To Halloween Special




It looks like Halloween is set to come to our TV screens six months early, because the Boulet Brothers have announced a brand new Halloween special that's set to drop in April.


via Variety:


Dracmorda and Swanthula Boulet, aka the Boulet Brothers will host and produce a scripted variety show, entitled Halfway To Halloween, which is set to air on AMC+, and the AMC horror streaming platform, Shudder, on April 25.


“Halfway to Halloween” will pay homage to the classic holiday variety shows, featuring scripted skits, musical performances, and guest appearances — including David Dastmalchian (“Suicide Squad”), Kevin Smith (“Clerks”), Taran Killam (“Saturday Night Live”), Matthew Lillard (“Scream”), Jorge Garcia (“Lost”), Steve Agee (“Peacemaker”), Barbara Crampton (“Chopping Mall”), Felissa Rose (“Sleepaway Camp”), Katya (“RuPaul’s Drag Race”), Derek Mears (“Friday the 13th”), Emily Hampshire (“Schitt’s Creek”), Kendra Onixx, Koco Caine & Melissa Befierce (“The Boulet Brothers’ Dragula”) and the Twin Temple band.


“We’re so thrilled that our first scripted project with the AMC family is celebrating all things Halloween!,” the Boulet Brothers said in a statement. “Like most of our fans, we have a difficult time waiting a full year to celebrate our favorite holiday, so we’ve pulled together an incredible group of actors, writers, and musicians to make this special the best Halloween special you’ve ever seen – even if we’re only halfway there!”


This announcement follows the recent deal between the Boulet Brothers and AMC Networks, to expand the “Dragula” franchise for Shudder. The Boulet Brothers’ previous project and hit competition series, “The Boulet Brothers’ Dragula: Titans” has become Shudder’s most-watched series.


Dastmalchian serves as co-producer in association with his production company, Good Fiend Films.


“Halfway to Halloween” airs on AMC+ and Shudder on April 25.


The Boulet Brothers are also launching a national tour with the cast of “The Boulet Brothers’ Dragula: Titans” in April.


Dragula is one of my favorite alternative drag shows on TV right now, and I'm definitely looking forward to this upcoming variety show.
