Being huge fans of the horror-themed sitcom “Holliston,” we were intrigued when we heard of another show with a similar flavor. “Queen Gorya” is a horror-comedy television show that is currently developing its pilot. Check out the trailer. All hail the queen!
“Queen Gorya” is in the fundraising phase, looking to bring together enough scratch to create the pilot. If you dig the trailer, head over to the “Queen Gorya” Kickstarter page and see what’s up.
Starring Satu Runa (“Dawson’s Creek”, The Coalition) as Queen Gorya, Haley Hudson (“Weeds”, Freaky Friday) as Jane Riley, and Steve J. Palmer (“House of Lies”) as Terry ‘The Wolfman’ Bowman, “Queen Gorya” is a killer concept created by Andrew Harrison and to be directed by Runa.
From the Press Release
Queen Gorya and her co-host Terry ‘The Wolfman’ Bowman dodge becoming faded reality stars and members of an exclusive cult in this indie horror comedy TV pilot from Final Fangirl Productions/Mad Carousel Films.
Merging the offbeat humor of cult films like Shaun of the Dead with an in-depth gaze at the iconic profession of horror hostess, the producers of “Queen Gorya” are searching for a permanent home for the half-hour horror comedy TV series.
After Team “Queen Gorya” hit the pavement at several horror and comic conventions, gathering a steady following, they decided it’s time to give back to the fans and deliver the beginning of a long journey into the abyss of the late-night TV horror comedy spotlight.
Once upon a time, Gloria Gorgodian (Satu Runa) was “Queen Gorya,” an infamous late night horror hostess on basic cable. Today, she slaves away in a dive bar whilst making the occasional convention appearance with her former co-star, Terry (Steve J. Palmer), an eccentric wannabe werewolf. Gloria is perfectly willing to sink further into bitterness and self-destruction, but the world isn’t quite done with her yet.
An ambitious, peculiar young film student, Jane Riley (Haley Hudson), sets out to make a documentary about Gloria and drag her back into the public eye. After being robbed and terrorized by her ex-boyfriend, Gloria is forced to reconnect with her prickly Armenian father. Covertly spying on Gloria’s life is a dangerous cult of nerds who believe that she is the fabled “Moonchild,” an ethereal occult messiah as foretold by Aleister Crowley.
