With releases such as Get Out and Happy Death Day, Blumhouse had an incredible year in 2017, and they’re looking to bring more horror innovation to the table this year.
Variety reports today that Hulu and Blumhouse Television are joining forces for an untitled horror anthology series with a very unique approach.
“The new series, part of the Hulu Originals slate, will deliver viewers 12 self-contained stories — a new episode premiering each month over one year”
The 12 episodes of the series are expected to tell standalone tales, though there will be some kind of narrative device connecting them. No writers or directors are attached at this time, but the plan is for the first episode to premiere, fittingly, in October 2018.
“At the heart of the deal is an extremely passionate audience and an extremely activateable audience in terms of horror,” said Hulu chief content officer Joel Stillerman. “It’s not even the larger bucket of ‘genre.’ I would 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 that genre today.”
