Looks like The SCREAM Awards are no longer the only legit horror heavy award show that will be making its small screen debut this fall.
According to a press release issued on Business Wire today, fuse TV has joined forces with Fangoria Entertainment to co-produce the first annual televised fuse Fangoria Chainsaw Awards.
From the release:
“fuse, the nation’s only viewer-influenced, music television network, announced today a partnership with Fangoria, the number one brand in horror for the past 25 years, to launch the fuse Fangoria Chainsaw Awards, the premier award show spotlighting the best in music, horror, cinema and television. fuse and Fangoria are teaming up this Halloween season to honor horror’s new generation of spine-tinglers and hair raisers, as well as the icons and pioneers that have influenced and shaped the modern horror industry. This year’s fright-fest, exclusively broadcast on fuse, will feature a “black carpet” pre-show, live musical performances by some of the biggest bands in pop, rock and hip-hop and a post-show, Gala of Gore, the official after party that even Hollywood’s A-Listers will kill to attend. In addition, fuse will develop exclusive content designed specifically for the network’s multiple platforms including fuse mobile, fuse OnDemand and fuse.tv. The 1st Annual fuse Fangoria Chainsaw Awards ceremony will air in primetime on fuse this October with plenty of post mortem action following the broadcast, available on fuse.tv and Fangoria.com.”
Niche market awards shows (i.e., Spike TV’s Video Game Awards) in the past have really sucked. Hopefully Fangoria and company can deliver something respectful and just for us rabid fans. All eyes are on them.
Note to the powers that be: Dread Central Alumnus Ryan Rotten had better be a presenter!
