Variety is reporting that Hulu has reached an agreement with Blumhouse Television to produce a monthly horror anthology.
According to the exclusive report, “The new series, part of the Hulu Originals slate, will deliver viewers 12 self-contained stories — a new episode premiering each month over one year. No writers or producers are yet attached to the project, and several creative details have yet to be settled.”
Hopefully the company will stay away from the American Horror Story structure, “But while the 12 episodes of the series’ first year are expected to function as standalone stories, some narrative device or structural device is expected to connect them.”
Hulu chief content officer Joel Stillerman was excited to be able to offer more content to horror fans on the streaming service saying “At the heart of the deal is an extremely passionate audience and an extremely activateable audience in terms of horror. It’s not even the larger bucket of ‘genre.’ I would say this falls squarely into the horror bucket. And it’s brought to us by, I would say in many ways that would be hard to argue, the consummate producers in that genre today.”
