Fearnet’s first original television show Holliston stars Adam Green and Joe Lynch as two struggling filmmakers who are trying to make it big. They dream of eventually leaving Holliston, Massachusetts, and heading to Hollywood, California, and the audience is along for the ride. Each character on the show is loosely based on the actors’ personalities in real life, with exaggerated, comedic circumstances. What separates the show from any routine sitcom is its celebration of the horror genre. The show deals with life’s daily up and downs, but it also pays homage to scary movies, and pokes fun at the genre, while also expressing an appreciation for the morbid films. Basically, if you love horror comedies, this show is for you.
The second season of Holliston won’t grace television screens until January 2013, but the Christmas special airs on Fearnet on December 18th, 2012. Here’s a sneak peek of the special, featuring Adam Green, Corri English, and Laura Ortiz.
