Many of the series’ contributors have ties to the original film and its 1987 sequel, Creepshow 2 (which even I have seen, and I hate horror). Shudder’s series features adaptations of a story by Stephen King as well as one by his son, Joe Hill. Other returning contributors include actor Adrienne Barbeu, director Tom Savini, writer/director John Harrison, and showrunner Greg Nicotero.

Shudder’s Creepshow is produced by the Cartel with Monster Agency Productions, Taurus Entertainment, and Striker Entertainment: Stan Spry, Jeff Holland, and Eric Woods are executive producers for the Cartel; Greg Nicotero and Brian Witten are executive producers for Monster Agency Productions; Robert Dudelson, James Dudelson and Jordan Kizwani are executive producers for Taurus Entertainment; Russell Binder is executive producer and Marc Mostman co-executive producer for Striker Entertainment.

Creepshow will premiere on Shudder later this year.
