It seems like horror has been good to the MTV network – they saw their ratings surge last year when they hosted several modern horror classics on their network, and their newest genre show, “Teen Wolf”, has done phenomenal ratings numbers and has already been picked up for a second season.
On August 29th MTV is looking to build on its horror repertoire with the brand new horror-comedy “Death Valley”, which premieres at 10:30 pm/9:30 pm CT. The series follows the ‘Undead Task Force’ (UTF), a newly formed division of the LAPD, documentary-style, as they capture the monsters that roam the streets of California’s San Fernando Valley. In a world where vampires, werewolves and zombies live freely, “Death Valley” is a fun, comedic non-stop thrill ride featuring chases, hardcore kills and bizarre encounters.
While at last month’s San Diego Comic-Con, Dread Central’s Brian “Dreads” Smith had the opportunity to talk with several of the creative minds behind the upcoming show, including director Drew Daywalt (who helms Episodes Four through Six), co-executive producer Spider One and Liquid Theory co-founders Austin Reading and Julie Kellman Reading.

Spider One is co-executive producer of the series. Tony DiBari is executive producer, MTV, and Matthew Parillo is MTV executive in charge of production.
