Season premieres October 18 at 9pm ET, on Showcase.
Channel Zero is an upcoming American horror anthology television series created by Nick Antosca. Storylines for the series are based on one of the internet’s most viral “creepypastas” – user-generated horror stories created and shared online.
The first announced installment, based on Kris Straub's Candle Cove, stars Paul Schneider and Fiona Shaw and was directed by Craig William Macneill. Candle Cove centres on one man’s obsessive recollections of a mysterious children’s television program from the 1980s, and his ever-growing suspicions about the role it might have played in a series of nightmarish and deadly events from his childhood. Channel Zero's second season will be based on Brian Russell's "The No-End House" and will be directed by Steven Piet.
