The series will focus on telling urban legends and the like. With some big star power behind them with names that include Christina Ricci, Jacob Batalon, Ming-Na Wen, Taissa Farmiga, Asa Butterfield, John Marshall Jones, Ron Livingston and more.

50 States of Fright sounds like it could be fun. I’m just wishing these were full length episodes as opposed to the micro content approach. But, what do I know?
