SHOUT! FACTORY TV & SCREAM FACTORY
ANNOUNCE ORIGINAL SERIES
TO DEBUT IN LIVE STREAM OCTOBER 26
Los Angeles, CA – October 20, 2016 – The hunt is on. Shout! Factory TV today announces the debut of original series Horror Hunters, a Scream Factory production, exclusively made for Shout! Factory TV. The pilot episode will be presented in a livestream on Wednesday, October 26 at 6 p.m. PST with an encore presentation at 9 p.m. PST at ShoutFactoryTV.com.
Horror Hunters is Scream Factory’s first foray into producing original premium unscripted series for the Shout! Factory TV digital platform. Made by and for fans of the horror genre, the launch of Horror Hunters serves as an important step in broadening the reach of Shout! Factory and its imprints as a tentpole new show for the streaming service. Horror Hunters will be livestreamed and then available for VOD viewing on Shout! Factory TV beginning October 28.
In Horror Hunters, horror experts Adam Rockoff and Aaron Christensen embark on a journey to discover some of the greatest collections of horror memorabilia in the world. At each destination, the Horror Hunters offer rare and valuable pieces from their own collections while attempting to trade for the most sought after, one-of-a-kind items they encounter.
In the pilot episode, the Horror Hunters visit Frankenstein uber-collector Phil Meenan and come face-to-face with a working (and dangerous!) Jacob’s Ladder device. Next, the Horror Hunters travel across Chicago to meet with well-known horror blogger Jon Kitley inside the infamous Kitley’s Krypt, where they propose an epic trade.
Because the show is made for the ultimate horror collector, Horror Hunters viewers will be encouraged to take a short survey to give feedback on the pilot following the livestream. This feedback from fans will guide the future of the show beyond its pilot episode, and each voter will be entered to win a Scream Factory Blu-ray prize package.
Horror Hunters viewers can join the conversation using the hashtag #HorrorHunters while they watch.
