Blumhouse and Hulu Team Up for New Horror Project

With the success of Netflix’s tech-driven anthology series, Black Mirror, it appears Hulu is getting in on the horror action of anthologies. While few details are yet available, Hulu and Blumhouse Television have announced their partnership on an upcoming horror anthology series. This team-up between the popular streaming network and the powerhouse of horror is sure to leave fans screaming with anticipation!

Although this series has yet to be titled and currently resides in infancy stage of pre-production, it is set to air one new episode every month. Though filmmaker names have yet to be attached and each installment will have a modest budget, the demand for quality material is not lost on Hulu chief content officer Joel Stillerman.

“At the heart of the deal is an extremely passionate audience and an extremely activatable audience in terms of horror,” said Stillerman according to JoBlo.com.

Diehard horror fans will be pleased to hear that Stillerman also suggests material will not deviate from the heart of the horror genre.

“It’s not even the larger bucket of ‘genre,’ continued Stillerman. “I say this falls squarely into the horror bucket. And it’s brought to us by, I would say in many ways that would be hard to argue, the consummate producers in the genre today.”

Though this partnership does not promise anything groundbreaking, co-presidents of Blumhouse Television Marci Wiseman and Jeremy Gold heavily imply that original ideas will be evident in the upcoming series.

“We think this is an innovation,” said Wiseman as stated by JoBlo.com. “We haven’t split the atom. But Hulu’s commitment to create episodic installments of an anthology series and to event-ize each of them – you don’t get that kind of commitment from partners very often, and we’re really excited and enthused.”

“It’s always exciting to do something that is different and innovative and grand and ambitious,” added Gold reported by JoBlo.com.

With the trending development between powerhouse networks Netflix and Hulu, the days of classic shows like The Twilight Zone, Creepshow, and Tales from the Crypt may be returning. According to Variety, the upcoming series is set to premiere in October just in time for the haunting season.
