FEARnet – Casts Dee Snider (Twisted Sister) and Oderus Urungus (GWAR) As Series Regulars For Horror-Comedy “Holliston”

Genre Cable Network Starts Production This Month On Original Series

LOS ANGELES – FEARnet, cable television’s premier Horror, Thriller and Suspense Channel, has added Dee Snider (Twisted Sister, Strangeland, radio/television personality) and Oderus Urungus (Alien lead singer from legendary Heavy Metal band “GWAR”) to “Holliston”, an outrageous and offbeat multi-camera, half-hour buddy comedy series starring directors Adam Green (“Hatchet 1 & 2”, “Frozen”, “Chillerama”) and Joe Lynch (”Knights of Badassdom”, “Wrong Turn 2”, “Chillerama”). Created by Green, FEARnet recently gave the series a six-episode order and is slated to begin production in September.

“The Big Bang Theory” meets “Evil Dead II” series, set in the town of Holliston, MA, follows the lives of Adam and Joe, two friends chasing the dream of becoming successful Horror movie filmmakers while struggling to make ends meet in their post-college jobs at a Boston cable access station where they also host a late night movie program called “The Movie Crypt”.

“Both Dee Snider and Oderus Urungus exude the kind of larger than life personalities and elements that these characters were written for. Both are true performers down to their cores and the entire cast and crew are so excited to have them join our family in these very fun roles that were tailor-made for their sensibilities,” says Green.

Snider joins the cast as Green and Lynch’s boss who also happens to be a longtime member of a “Van Halen” tribute band. While he still dreams of being a Rock Star, he also takes the cable job very seriously and has delusions of grandeur of how he’s part of “Hollywood.” Urungus will play himself and is Green’s “imaginary” friend who happens to live in a closet and gives him advice (extremely misguided and offensive advice).

“’Holliston’ fits in perfectly with our current series. Dee and Oderus are excellent additions and build on a cast that could only be found on FEARnet,” said Peter Block, president, FEARnet.  “Both are beloved by the genre fans and are just the first announcement in a list of thrilling casting to come”.

Snider and Urungus join Green and Lynch in an ensemble cast that also includes Laura Ortiz (“The Hills Have Eyes”, “Horton Hears A Who”) and Corri English (“Unrest”, “The Bedford Diaries”, lead singer of Brokedown Cadillac).

Created, written, and directed by Green, his production company ArieScope Pictures will handle the production of “Holliston.”  Green and Lynch will serve as executive producers along with producer Cory Neal (“Frozen”, “Hatchet”).

“Holliston” is intended to take a slot on FEARnet’s Tuesday night “Twisted Comedy” block, a Horror-comedy lineup that consists of a distinctive pair of scripted series: “Todd & The Book of Pure Evil,” a supernatural high-school comedy featuring Jason Mewes (“Mallrats”, “Clerks”, “Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back”) and “Psychoville”, an award-winning, British Black-Comedy thriller that centers on a group of characters haunted by a mysterious blackmailer.
