Shudder will be presenting two panels at this year’s Comic-Con@Home: “Scary Good TV With Horror’s Top Showrunners” and “Horror is Queer.” As AMC Networks’ premium streaming service for horror, thriller and the supernatural, Shudder has shown that its a go-to platform for genre fans. And for 2020, they will be presenting two powerhouse horror panels at this year’s virtual Comic-Con@Home event:
Scary Good TV with Horror’s Top Showrunners — Nick Antosca (Channel Zero), Meredith Averill (Locke & Key), Don Mancini (Chucky), Greg Nicotero (Creepshow) and Jami O’Brien (NOS4A2) offer their unique insights on why horror TV is having a moment and what it takes to create the kind of terrifying shows that keep viewers coming back episode after episode. Moderated by screenwriter/educator Tananarive Due (executive producer, Horror Noire: A History of Black Horror).
Shudder Presents ‘Horror is Queer’ — Discover why horror cinema is (and always has been) queer with Sam Wineman (The Quiet Room), director of Shudder’s upcoming documentary on LGBTQ horror film history, and a panel of leading voices: Nay Bever (co-host, Attack of the Queerwolf podcast), Bryan Fuller (creator, Hannibal), Don Mancini (creator of the Child’s Play franchise), Lachlan Watson (actor, Chilling Adventures of Sabrina) and, serving as moderator, writer Jordan Crucchiola.
Comic-Con@Home runs July 22-26. Dates and times for Shudder’s panels will be announced via the event’s organizers later this week.
