Per Deadline, Creepshow based on the iconic anthology film written by Stephen King and directed by George Romero, will premiere in 2019. The Walking Dead helmer Greg Nicotero is attached to direct, executive produce and oversee the show’s creative elements. Producers say the new Creepshow series will fulfill the promise of the original film’s tagline “The Most Fun You’ll Ever Have Being Scared.” Each episode of the anthology series will tell original fun and scary stories, and will be helmed by a different director, with Nicotero directing the first episode and his Oscar- and multiple Emmy-winning company KNB EFX Group Inc. handling the creature and make-up fx.
Nicotero also added “Creepshow is a project very close to my heart! It is one of those titles that embraces the true spirit of horror…thrills and chills celebrated in one of its truest art forms, the comic book come to life! I’m honored to continue the tradition in the ‘spirit’ in which it was created.”
