    Podcast/Book Series Welcome to Night Vale Being Adapted for TV

    Published

    on

    Following in the footsteps of “Lore,” another popular podcast/book series is on its way to the small screen! That’s right, kids! Pretty soon we’ll be heading to a sleepy yet quite mad little place where your eyes and ears have been thoroughly spookified! “Welcome to Night Vale.”

    Deadline is reporting that the podcast is being adapted by FX for the small screen in conjunction with Sony Pictures. Joseph Fink and Jeffrey Cranor, creators of the podcast and authors of the franchise books Welcome to Night Vale and It Devours!, will executive produce the series alongside Gennifer Hutchison (“Better Call Saul”).

    The site goes on to report that in addition, Harper Perennial, an imprint of HarperCollins Publishers, has signed up Fink and Cranor for new script books of Seasons 3 and 4 of the Welcome to Night Vale podcast. The companion volumes feature guest introductions by the authors and cast members and original illustrations by series artist Jessica Hayworth.

    We’ve never met anyone in the industry who understands our world and approach to storytelling better than Gennifer does,” said Fink and Cranor. “We are lucky to be working with her, as well as FX – a network with a long history of creating excellent television.

    So many readers have passionately embraced the Welcome to Night Vale novels and script books,” says Amy Baker, Vice-President and Associate Publisher of Harper Perennial. “I can’t wait to see the same enthusiasm for what I’m sure will be an amazing television series from Gennifer and FX.

    Welcome to Night Vale is a twice-monthly podcast in the style of community updates for the small desert town of Night Vale, featuring local weather, news, announcements from the Sheriff’s Secret Police, mysterious lights in the night sky, dark hooded figures with unknowable powers, and cultural events.

    Fink and Cranor created the podcast in 2012, having met through the anarchic, award-winning theater group the New York Neo-Futurists.

    Exclusive: Cadabra Brings Chilling Eeriness With M.R. James’ Casting the Runes

    Published

    on

    For those who haven’t heard of them, Cadabra Records is a boutique record label that specializes in creating audio plays of fantastic horror stories. They did it with The Yellow Sign by Robert W. Chambers and have done stories from Bram Stoker and H.P. Lovecraft. Today, we’re thrilled to help them announce their new project, which is a full cast audio play of M.R. James’ Casting the Runes. Below is an audio sample, which give you a taste of the magnificent scope of the production.

    Starring David Warner (The Omen, Star Trek, In The Mouth of Madness), produced by Bleak December, and adapted by Anthony D.P. Mann, the limited edition vinyl will be released on January 26th with the first edition of 500 copies to be pressed on 150-gram colored vinyl and housed in deluxe heavy weight gatefold tip-on jacket with newly commissioned art by Adam Burke.

    Speaking about lending his voice to Casting the Runes, Warner states, “I was brought up only with radio, so it means so much to me to be able to imagine for myself what is being presented. And we can all imagine differently what is being presented to us via audio and radio, and that’s what the magic of it is – our own imaginations are able to take over. As an actor (and a voice actor, sometimes), I’m so glad to be able to contribute to peoples’ visual take on whatever it is we’re presenting. I just think it’s so invaluable, you know – the images and dreams in the mind.

    You can follow Cadabra through their official website, Twitter, and Instagram. To order any of their records, head on to their online store.
