Shudder has ordered a Black horror anthology series that will showcase stories by Black screenwriters and directors. Shudder will feature new work from established and emerging talents, expanding on a legacy of Black genre filmmaking. The series is set to premiere later this year on Shudder and will rollout to AMC at a later date.
Writers that are attached to the upcoming project include NAACP Award-winning husband-and-wife writing duo Tananarive Due (My Soul to Keep, Horror Noire: A History of Black Horror) and Steven Barnes (Lion’s Blood), Eisner and Harvey Award-nominated writer, illustrator and graphic novelist Ezra C. Daniels (BTTM FDRS), World Fantasy and Bram Stoker Award-winning novelist Victor LaValle (The Ballad of Black Tom, The Changeling), and Emmy and Peabody Award-winner Al Letson (State of the RE:Union).
Author of Horror Noire: Blacks in American Horror Films from the 1890s to Present, Dr. Robin R. Means Coleman, will also be a consultant on the project along with Phil Nobile Jr., Kelly Ryan, and Ashlee Blackwell who were producers on the Shudder documentary which the book was based on.
