Richard Foos' Shout! Factory TV Launches Original Programming With 'Horror Hunters'
October 21, 2016 at 12:33 PM (PT)
Ex-RHINO RECORDS co-founder RICHARD FOOS' SHOUT! FACTORY TV and SCREAM FACTORY will launch its first live streaming series, "Horror Hunters," on WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER nth at 6p (PT) with an encore presentation at 9p (PT) 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 the series serves as a first step in broadening the reach of SHOUT! FACTORY and its imprints as a tentpole new show for the streaming service. "Horror Hunters" will be live-streamed and then available for VOD viewing on SHOUT! FACTORY TV beginning OCTOBER 28th.
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.
