Terror has found a new place to call home! Terror TV will invade Roku streaming players and televisions starting next week. With an endless array of free horror thrills, the new video-on-demand channel promises to be “uncut, unrated and unreal.”
According to their official press release, Terror TV will debut on August 21 on ROKU as a free video-on-demand channel. Stationed out in Tempe, Arizona, the debut content will feature independent films chosen exclusively from the library of Acort International Distribution. Terror TV will also be crafting original content slated for spring 2019. All of which will be presented in crisp, HD quality.
Queued for the lineup, Terror Talk will feature personalities from the world of horror, science fiction and fantasy. Presented as a reality-based segment, Joel Eisenberg and Steve Hillard’s Council Tree Productions will produce the talk show.
Shadow Show, a spinoff of the horror anthology and IDW comic of the same name, was originally edited by Mort Castle. Castle will return to the series as an executive producer along with Council Tree Productions.
“We have numerous horror projects on the table,” says Eisenberg, who was formerly attached to TNT’s paused Tales from the Crypt reinvention. “Teaming with startup Terror TV is the type of opportunity we strive for, and we hope the beginning of a bold new partnership for original horror programming.”
Eisenberg teamed up with telecom investor Stephen Hillard to form Council Tree Productions back in 2017. Currently, as writers, Hillard and Eisenberg are penning the The Chronicles of Ara, a multi-volume fantasy novel. As producers, besides Terror TV, they are creating several projects, including Farway Canyon, directed by Anthony Ferrante (Sharknado) and Mirkwood. Based on Hillard’s controversial novel about J.R.R. Tolkien, Deborah Pratt, co-creator of Quantum Leap, will direct Mirkwood.
Darrin Ramage, Terror TV’s owner, is also known for his production and distribution company, Brain Damage Films.
Terror TV looks to set itself aside from the rest. With great names attached behind-the-scenes, we will be looking forward to the August 21 launch date.
