The next genre-based series to hit television, Salem, arrives this Sunday, April 20th on WGN. And in anticipation of what looks like a pretty gnarly show full of paranoia and torture, we have a trailer and new one-sheet to share with you.
Set in the volatile world of 17th century Massachusetts, Salem explores what really fueled the town’s infamous witch trials and dares to uncover the dark, supernatural truth cloaked behind the veil of this infamous period in American history.

The show, which centers on an epic romance wrapped around this explosive revelation, delivers a bold new vision of Salem – and an even bolder new vision of witches.

Fans of Hemlock Grove – and all of its gory soap opera-like antics – will be thrilled to know that season 2 is going to debut on Netflix July 11th. A video teaser hit the web this morning featuring one of the stars of the series, Famke Janssen, who returns with Dougray Scott, Bill Skarsgård and Landon Liboiron.
Season two continues with the town coming to grips with the shocking massacre incurred by one of its deadliest creatures. Roman and Peter are now faced with new responsibilities and the realities that come with adulthood.
Nearly a year ago, Netflix put out it’s first (of hopefully) many original horror titles with Hemlock Grove. While it was received with much polarity, Hulu is now gracing us with their own original genre title Deadbeat and it is a whole different animal.
Deadbeat is a multi-camera horror comedy from Cody Heller and Brett Konner, two of the main writers of the FX dark comedy Wilfred. The ten episode series tells the story of Kevin Pacalioglu (or Pac), played by Tyler Labine (Tucker and Dale vs Evil, Reaper), a stoner medium who is consistently behind on his rent and best friends with his drug dealer, conveniently named Roofie (Brandon T. Jackson). The central plot of the show focuses on Pacalioglu discovering that his long time crush and rumored celebrity medium Camomile White (played by Cat Deeley) is a fraud and the fallout from the discovery.
NBC revealed tonight that it’s two-part Rosemary’s Baby mini-series will air on Sunday, May 11th and Thursday, May 15th at 9pm. Directed by Agnieszka Holland, this new adaptation of the Ira Levin novel stars Zoe Saldana, Patrick J. Adams and Jason Isaacs.
