SYFY GREENLIGHTS TWO SEASONS OF "CHANNEL ZERO" LIMITED ANTHOLOGY SERIES FROM NICK ANTOSCA AND MAX LANDIS

PRODUCED BY UNIVERSAL CABLE PRODUCTIONS, ANTHOLOGY'S FIRST INSTALLMENT, CHANNEL ZERO: CANDLE COVE, WILL DEBUT IN FALL 2016

NEW YORK - November 18, 2015 - Syfy announced today that it has greenlit a new limited anthology series, CHANNEL ZERO, from Nick Antosca (Hannibal, Friday the 13th, Teen Wolf) and Max Landis (Chronicle, American Ultra). Universal Cable Productions will serve as the studio for this twelve-hour order, which will air on Syfy in two self-contained, six-episode seasons in Fall 2016 and Fall 2017 as the centerpiece of the channel's annual 31 Days of Halloween programming event.

The first installment of CHANNEL ZERO is set to debut with the six-part Candle Cove, based on an unnerving tale written by Kris Straub which gained notoriety online as a popular "creepypasta" (user-generated horror stories that are published and passed around the internet). Candle Cove centers on one man's obsessive recollections of a mysterious children's television program from the 1980s - and his ever-growing suspicions about the role it might have played in a series of nightmarish and deadly events from his childhood.

Antosca, a novelist and screenwriter, wrote the pilot and will serve as executive producer alongside Landis.

The second, yet-to-be announced six episode season of CHANNEL ZERO will premiere on Syfy in 2017.

Said Dave Howe, President, Syfy & Chiller: "As Syfy's first ever Halloween original scripted series, CHANNEL ZERO will transport viewers into the deepest recesses of their darkest imagination, with frightening tales from two of the genre's most accomplished storytellers, Max Landis and Nick Antosca."

"We're thrilled to partner with Max Landis and Nick Antosca to bring these brilliantly macabre stories to life," said Jeff Wachtel, Chief Content Officer, NBC Universal Cable Entertainment. "Fans are in for a haunting, spine-tingling ride."

Said Nick Antosca and Max Landis: "As lifelong fans of experimental horror and science fiction, from The Twilight Zone to Tales from the Crypt, we are overjoyed to have the opportunity to offer exposure to a new generation of creators. CHANNEL ZERO is a great opportunity to explore new frontiers in the genre, in a way that allows us to really dig in and get weird."

CHANNEL ZERO: Candle Cove will join Syfy's previously announced 2016 lineup of original series including THE MAGICIANS, based on Lev Grossman's best-selling novels, HUNTERS, from The Walking Dead executive producer Gale Anne Hurd, and second seasons of 12 MONKEYS, KILLJOYS and DARK MATTER.
