Word of a new project that combines the works of Edgar Allan Poe with the talented team at Macabre Mansion has arrived. Check out the first details on the original all-star audio drama Poe Poe Pitiful Me.
From the Press Release:
Producers Daniel Roebuck and Kevin Herren are teaming up to produce Poe Poe Pitiful Me. Hosted by Dr. Shocker (Roebuck), our story follows struggling writer Edgar Allan Poe as he pitches three of his original stories to a publisher.
The three Poe stories – THE OBLONG BOX, THE CASK OF AMONTILLADO, and PREMATURE BURIAL – stay true to Poe’s original writings with only minor changes in dialogue.
“This audio drama will be a little different than the rest of the ‘Macabre Mansion Presents’ series,” Herren said. “It’s going to be a comedic fictional day in the life of Poe with three of Poe’s short stories being played out inside the fictional piece. It’s three audio dramas within an audio drama.”
Roebuck and Herren have a history of working together. “Danny and I have worked together on previous Macabre Mansion projects, including The Legend of Sleepy Hollow and A Christmas Carol,” he said. “I am especially excited about this [one] because it’s the first time we’ve teamed up as co-producers and collaborators on a project.”
Roebuck is also the host of another series that Herren co-produces with Jim O’Rear titled Tales from Beyond.
Giving listeners some visual insight into what goes on behind the scenes, a “making of” documentary DVD will also be produced in conjunction with Poe Poe Pitiful Me. Look for both a CD and the DVD to be released around October 2014.
