With Halloween right around the corner, horror fans can rejoice at The CW’s new concept show: Two Sentence Horror Stories.
What are the Two Sentence Horror Stories you wonder? They are contemporary tales of horror and haunting for the diverse and digital age. Inspired by the viral fan fiction of two sentence horror stories, this anthology series taps into universal primal fears, filtered through the anxieties of the most connected and racially diverse generation. Despite dizzying advancements in technology, inequality, social progress, and environmental degradation…the things that haunt us are still the same.
Created by writer/director/producer Vera Miao, each half-hour episode offers a distinct and popular horror subgenre experience while tackling today’s most relevant and topical social issues. Developed from the award-winning digital short-form series, Miao assembled an impressive writers room for the half-hour version with a creative team who found a personal connection to her vision of refreshing the horror genre. Executive produced by Vera Miao (“Best Friends Forever”), Emily Wiedemann (“Creative Control”) and Chazz Carfora (“Stories From The Felt”), TWO SENTENCE HORROR STORIES is from Stage 13 in association with Warner Bros.
You can catch the beginning of your favorite kind of fear airing on The CW, Thursday August 29th, at 9:00 ET/PT and again at 9:30 PT/ET.
