FEARnet greenlights ‘Holliston’, reports Variety.
Skein is a half-hour multicam buddy comedy starring Adam Green (director of Hatchet, Hatchet 2 and Frozen) and Joe Lynch (director of Wrong Turn 2 and The Knights of Badassdom). Production on the six-episode series is set to begin later this year.
Green, who created the sitcom, and Lynch “portray a pair of buddies who live in Holliston, Mass., and chase a dream of becoming successful horror filmmakers. While struggling to make ends meet at a Boston cable access station, they also have to endure girlfriend problems.”
“Adam came to us with a truly off-the-wall series that was overflowing with a supporting cast of misfits. We knew it was a perfect fit for our ‘Twisted Comedy’ block,” said FEARnet president Peter Block.
Other series in the Tuesday comedy block are “Todd & the Book of Pure Evil” and “Psychoville.”
