Adam Green’s (Hatchet, Hatchet II, Frozen) long-time dream project comes to life with horror pal Joe Lynch (Knights of Badassdom, Wrong Turn 2) when their horror sitcom “Holliston” premieres on FEARnet television Tuesday, April 3rd, 2012, at 10:30 p.m. ET.
While horror fans have heard quite a bit about the project, FEARnet has premiered the first trailer that we’ve embedded below.
“Holliston” is a riotous and offbeat multi-camera, buddy comedy set in the town of Holliston (near Boston). Described by its creators as “”The Big Bang Theory” meets Evil Dead II,” the series shines a light on the post-college life where everything is a struggle, and nothing works out like it’s supposed to, with terrifyingly funny results as Adam and Joe struggle to become big-time horror filmmakers and make ends meet.
“Holliston” stars Green and Lynch along with Corri English (Unrest, The Bedford Diaries, lead singer of Brokedown Cadillac), Laura Ortiz (The Hills Have Eyes, Horton Hears A Who), Dee Snider (“Celebrity Apprentice”, Twisted Sister, Strangeland, radio/television personality), and Oderus Urungus (Alien lead singer from legendary heavy metal band GWAR). The regular cast will welcome a bevy of guest stars and celebrity cameos during its first season. Upcoming guest appearances include: Colton Dunn (Hatchet II, “Parks and Recreation”), Danielle Harris (Halloween 4 and 5), Kane Hodder (Friday the 13th Parts VII and VIII, Hatchet), John Landis (An American Werewolf in London, Animal House), Derek Mears (Friday the 13th), Bill Moseley (The Devil’s Rejects), Brian Posehn (“The Sarah Silverman Show”), Parry Shen (Hatchet, Better Luck Tomorrow), Tony Todd (Candyman, Hatchet), Ray Wise (Chillerama, “Reaper”).
