You know the one about the chicken and the egg. Now let me ask you, which came worse, the shitty sitcom, or the shitty movies that gained enough popularity to allow those directors to create that sitcom? If you said the sitcom, you’re right, but we all lose anyway. Welcome to Adam Green and Joe Lynch’s Holliston.
That was quick. Only two weeks into its freshman season, FEARnet’s first original series for television has been picked up for a second season. Holliston, the comedy made just for fans of horror films and over-the-top rock bands like Twisted Sister and GWAR (the show stars the singers from both), seems to have found its niche.
FEARnet’s first foray into the world of scripted television is almost here; much to the surprise of many, Holliston is a comedy, albeit described as a “twisted” one. The series was created by and stars Adam Green, who fits right into FEARnet with his background in horror (although it’s probably only hard-core horror fans who know his name).
