CW Goes Horror
No script. Contestants “killed” until the last man is standing. All we need is Richard Dawson to host, and our Running Man future will be here.
Variety reports this morning that the CW has ordered eight episodes of the horror-themed reality show “13”, which will be produced by Sam Raimi, Rob Tapert and veteran reality show creator Jay Bienstock. The show will take place in a classic horror movie setting like a creepy small town or lakeside retreat. 13 contestants will be forced to deal with something killing them off one by one, though I doubt any gore will be involved, sadly.
”"We want to cast it like a horror movie," Bienstock told the trade. "And shoot it a little differently as well. Think about those old movies -- we want to put people in a place like that, where they have to deal with their fears and anxieties. They'll end up surprising one another."
Could be terrible, could be a lot of fun; only time will tell. We’ll keep an eye on “13” and give you more when we have it!
Wonder how long you'd survive in the Dread Central forums!
