The New England area has become a big place for film productions as of late, and now horror fans can expect to see a bit of the North East on the small screen with the new Fearnet sitcom, Holliston. The half-hour comedy series, created by horror alums, Adam Green (Hatchet) and Joe Lynch (Wrong Turn 2), stars Dee Snider (Twisted Sister), Corri English (Unrest), and Laura Ortiz (The Hills Have Eyes).
The series, based in Green’s hometown of Holliston, Massachusetts, follows two best friends, Green and Lynch, as they struggle to maintain their chaotic lives while trying to make it big as filmmakers.
The campy series will follow Green and Lynch, who play younger versions of themselves. Green told the Boston Globe, “The best way to describe it is ‘The Big Bang Theory’ meets ‘Evil Dead II.” The 6-episode series will follow the traditional sitcom setup and will include a laugh track.
The first official promo for the series was released online yesterday and you can check it out below. Being a fan of Green and also being from Boston, I’m super excited about this series. It looks like it’s going to be a silly and funny escape for my Tuesday nights in April.
