Just about a year ago, in November of 2013 to be exact, we shared the Nerdist’s killer video entitled “The Real Housewives of Horror,” which people were clamoring to be made into a full-on series. That wish has been granted.
From the Press Release:
Summer may be coming to a close, but fear not! Nerdist Industries has a veritable cornucopia of new content premiering this fall to get you through the coming months.
Nerdist is coming out swinging with a fall lineup filled with some heavy-hitting content, including, but definitely not limited to: “Scott Ian’s Bloodworks,” which offers an exclusive look at the most impressive makeup and effects artists in the business from musician Scott Ian of Anthrax, and “The Real Housewives of Horror,” a gruesome parody of, you guessed it, the “Real Housewives” shows, created by and starring Brea Grant (“Dexter,” “Heroes”) and executive produced by Kevin Pereira (G4’s “Attack of the Show”).
If you want something truly horrific, look no further than “The Real Housewives of Horror,” which is exactly what it sounds like – Kevin Pereira and Brea Grant’s pitch perfect parody of those “Real Housewives” shows but with the assumption that all the Housewives are married to famous movie monsters, serial killers, and all manner of spooky, scary creatures. They’re at least as frightening as the actual Housewives, if not ten to seventy-five percent scarier.
“It is a privilege to work with Nerdist again,” says “RHOH’s” Kevin Pereira, “Very few companies ask if you can make the blood more splattery or the poltergeists more sexy.”
Scott Ian says, “I am very excited to be doing “Bloodworks” with Nerdist. Let me rephrase that… I am a little bit nervous, nauseous, filled with dread, and sometimes scared shitless about committing to this show and letting these FX lunatics have their way with me as this season is going to be crazier, bloodier, guttier, and more fucked-upier!”
