Shudder just dropped some exciting news today...
...KHC has learned via The Wrap today that horror streaming service Shudder has picked up a horror anthology series showcasing the work of black creators!
The untitled Black horror anthology will debut on Shudder and AMC+ later this year and will feature the work of writers Tananarive Due (“My Soul to Keep”) and Steven Barnes (“Lion’s Blood”), illustrator and graphic novelist Ezra C. Daniels (“BTTM FDRS”), novelist Victor LaValle (“The Ballad of Black Tom,” “The Changeling”) and Emmy-winner Al Letson (“State of the RE:Union”)!
That is one hell of a list of talent.
Said Shudder General Manager Craig Engler, “When we saw the first cut of our 'Horror Noire' documentary, we realized there was a huge untapped reservoir of great Black horror stories that needed to be told, and an extremely talented group of writers and directors ready to tell them...While the documentary was a look back at the history of Black horror, this anthology is a showcase for the future and will introduce audiences to fantastic new stories and characters.”
Dr. Robin R. Means Coleman, who previously collaborated with Shudder on the 2019 documentary “Horror Noire: A History of Black Horror,” will consult on the series alongside producers Phil Nobile Jr., Kelly Ryan and Ashlee Blackwell. Swirl Films will produce with Eric Tomosunas and Ron Robinson serving as executive producers.
