Another bit of interesting news coming from the Weekend of Horrors, this time from Andrew Kasch. Daniel Knauf, best known as the creator of Carnivale, just announced his latest project; Exodus.
One of these days I know there's going to be an official graphic for NBC's horror anthology Fear Itself, but until then I'm kind of content with just the channel's logo. Anyway, those of you who have been waiting patiently for the successor to Masters of Horror will have to wait a little while longer for the first episode of Fear Itself to air.
NBC's horror anthology Fear Itself may actually get me to watch TV again. The stories all sound likable and the latest addition to the mix has me gung-ho on the whole idea.
I have absolutely no idea why I even pay for cable since I never have time to watch it, but this writer may have to make an exception when NBC airs the reincarnation of Masters of Horror known as "Fear Itself" this summer ... or maybe not.
Only a few days have passed since our last big story on NBC's upcoming horror anthology Fear Itself ("Full Fear Itself Episode Lineup!" – March 2008), and the internet is abuzz about it again today. NBC will be premiering the show on May 29th at 10 P.M. Only two months to go!
I gotta be honest; I lost a lot of interest in the NBC Fear Itself series when I learned Mick Garris was no longer involved. The concept was his to begin with, and even though the results in both seasons of Masters of Horror were questionable, there was still an indie feel to them that I had to respect.
Word’s been flying all over the web today that Mick Garris is, officially, no longer involved with the NBC Masters of Horror re-creation, Fear Itself. Of course, Mick had to officially exit the project when the writer’s strike began, but we decided to drop him a line and confirm that he's still off now that the strike has ended, as well as verify the directors' names that were revealed yesterday.
With the writer’s strike officially over (what a relief that is, lemme tell ya), you can expect more and more massive updates like this on long-standing projects, in this case Fear Itself.
In an article just posted over on Fangoria chatting with KNB effects man and all around cool guy Greg Nicotero, details on one of the thirteen Fear Itself episodes were casually dropped.
With the announcement a few days back of a new horror series being produced by Mick Garris called Fear Itself (“NBC Orders Fear Itself” – September 2007), many fans were immediately concerned that this would just be a watered-down Masters of Horror series.
A few weeks back, you may recall Masters of Horror creator Mick Garris made the semi-official announcement that Lionsgate were officially on board for a third season of the popular anthology show (“Lionsgate Behind Masters 3!” – August, 2007). Today it was announced that NBC has reworked Masters with Garris to create a new show, just without the freedom of pay cable.
