Hulu Premieres Two New Horror Series in October: ‘Into the Dark’ and ‘Light as a Feather’

Hulu is gearing up to give horror fans what they want this October with two new series debuts: Into the Dark and Light as a Feather.

Hulu will start the month with the Blumhouse-produced 12-part anthology series Into the Dark on October 5, and a new episode will air each month for the entire year.  Each episode will feature a stand-alone story, and will not connect to each other (you know, how anthologies are supposed to work.  Yes I’m looking in your direction Ryan Murphy).

Hulu’s other new horror series Light As a Feather will debut on October 12. The program was “Created and executive produced by R. Lee Fleming Jr.,  (and) the show explores what happens when five girls playing a game of Light as a Feather, Stiff as a Board start dying off, forcing the survivors to figure out why they’re being targeted — and whether the evil force hunting them down is one of their own.” read more

Hulu to Develop Wattpad’s ‘Light as a Feather’ Into Series

The streaming services continue to break new ground in this brave new world.  According to Deadline, Hulu will be developing the supernatural thriller Light as a Feather into a 10-episode straight-to-series project.  This continues the trend of media and television outlets discovering interesting content and projects from outside of the normal platforms of entertainment.

Light as a Feather is an adaptation of the online story Light as a Feather, Stiff as a Board by writer Zoe Aarsen.  It was originally published on Wattpad, which is a social collaboration website that allows young and unknown writers to produce their own content.  Feather follows five teenagers attending a sleepover, where an innocent game of Light as a Feather, Stiff as a Board turns into a nightmare in which one-by-one the girls begin dying exactly as the game dictates.  They are forced to question their own place in the scenario, and whether or not the evil actually lurks among them.  The series is a joint-venture between not only Wattpad and Hulu, but also Grammnet (Kelsey Grammar’s production company) and AwesomenessTV. read more
