SXSW 2012: Footage from the Holliston Panel
This past Sunday, March 11th, during the SXSW Film Festival, a "Holliston" panel was held with creator, director, actor, and genre favorite Adam Green, actor and executive producer Joe Lynch, and FEARnet president and executive producer Peter Block during which some footage was shown, and now we have it here for you in all its unedited glory!
"Holliston" invades homes on Tuesday, April 3rd, at 10:30 pm on FEARnet.
Adam and Joe are two down on their luck guys living in the small New England town of Holliston, Massachusetts, and struggling to chase their dream of becoming horror movie filmmakers... all while dealing with life, their day jobs, and the opposite sex. With a cast that includes a cross-dressing sexually inappropriate boss, a mentally handicapped cat, and an imaginary friend/alien who lives in the closet... "Holliston" re-invents the traditional sit-com as we know it and breaks new (and sometimes bloody) ground.
