Can you believe FEARnet is already onto its eighth original web series already? The Comcast-backed horror hub, which recently launched Fear Clinic, is now gearing up for Post Mortem with Mick Garris. The interview series will feature five minute episodes, in a “Charlie Rose of Horror” fashion, with various horror directors and other luminaries like Tobe Hooper, Wes Craven, Robert Englund and John Carpenter.
Mick Garris might in fact be the Charlie Rose of horror, having a rolodex that reads like a who’s who in the genre after creating The Fantasy Film Festival and Showtime’s Masters of Horror anthology series. “There is nobody in the business who can bring to our audience what Mick can – an unprecedented knowledge of the industry from the ground up, and a network of A-List colleagues who are happy to share with him and our viewers their experiences, stories and insights about fear-inspired entertainment,” said FEARnet’s President Diane Robina.
The series is being produced by Jetpack Media—the same shop behind comedy favorite Old Jews Telling Jokes. Jetpack’s Eric Spiegelman is producing Post Mortem and Perry Martin directing. Production on the project began last week with FEARnet saying they expect a December debut.
