From the Press Release
FEARnet will air an exclusive half-hour special reuniting "Reaper" series stars Bret Harrison, Ray Wise, Rick Gonzalez, Tyler Labine, Christine Willes, and Ken Marino plus series creators Tara Butters and Michele Fazekas. In a roundtable format shot in April, the amiable cast openly discusses many behind-the-scenes anecdotes and stories from their time on set. Talking points include the cast’s favorite memories--such as, Sock’s lusty encounter with Gladys; the creators’ insider info that acclaimed comedian Louis CK originally auditioned for the part of the Devil; and whether or not the team would be open to a Kickstarter campaign to resurrect "Reaper". These are just a few of the things fans can expect to glean from the special. The reunion will air Tuesday, May 28th, at 9 p.m. ET/6 p.m. PT.
FEARnet’s first licensed television show--the cult hit comedy "Reaper"--makes its debut as part of the Network’s Twisted Comedy Block on Tuesday, June 4th (9 p.m. ET/6 p.m. PT). The quirky series focuses on the life of Sam Oliver (Bret Harrison), a college drop-out who, on his 21st birthday, learns that he now must work as a bounty hunter for the Devil (Wise) as part of a deal made many years ago when Sam’s parents offered up their firstborn son in exchange for good health for the ailing father. Tyler Labine (Tucker & Dale vs. Evil) and Rick Gonzalez (Coach Carter) play Sam’s slacker friends who help him in his new secret double-life of "reaping" souls, using a Dirt Devil vacuum cleaner as well as other modern household items. FEARnet has licensed both seasons of the hour-long series for a complete 31-episode order.
