The Walking Dead’s Greg Nicotero developing a Creepshow anthology series which was revealed last year. The series is based on the 1982 horror film from Stephen King and George A. Romero and now we have new details on the project.
Production Weekly is reporting that one of the episodes will be called “Survivor Type” and it will center on a character named Richard Pine, who is “Shipwrecked on a desert island” and while there he “reflects on his life and does the unthinkable in order to survive.”
Nicotero previously talked about the series, which is coming to the Shudder streaming service. Horror News Network reported the following from NYCC:
“Nicotero stressed that the tone of the series would shift from story-to-story, with some taking a lighthearted comedic approach and others taking a much more frightening path. He also stated that each story would be ‘as long as they need to be’ and that he did not feel any pressure to fit the stories into segments of equal length.”
Nicotero, who is also directing several episodes, also said in a previous statement:
“Creepshow is a project very close to my heart! It is one of those titles that embraces the true spirit of horror… thrills and chills celebrated in one of its truest art forms, the comic book come to life! I’m honored to continue the tradition in the ‘spirit’ which it was created.”
