A cable channel that is a joint venture of Comcast, Lionsgate and Sony Pictures announced that it has greenlighted its first original scripted series, B&C reports.
FEARnet gave the go-ahead to “Holliston,” a show about two friends who want to become horror movie filmmakers. The show, set in Holliston, Mass., tracks the friends as they struggle to earn a living in a Boston cable-access station after college. It will star Adam Green of "Frozen" and Joe Lynch of "Knights of Badassdom," who will also be the show’s directors.
The series will debut in early 2012.
FEARnet, which launched in 2006, operates a cable net, website and VOD service under the ownership of the joint venture Horror Entertainment LLC.
