It’s that magical time of year when the temperature lowers, there’s cheer in the air, and something or someone Christmas related goes on a killing spree. Adding to the classic Holiday Horror sub-genre comes 12 Deadly Days, a new half-hour horror/comedy series collaboration between Blumhouse TV and Youtube Red as reported on Deadline.
Created by Chris Cullari and Jennifer Raite, 12 Deadly Days is set in the cursed town of Saturn, CA, during the 12 days leading up to Christmas. Over the course of a dozen interconnected tales, the town’s residents find themselves terrorized by everything from killer carolers and lovelorn vampires to cursed fruitcakes and haunted Christmas trees. Blumhouse Television — the TV division of Blumhouse Prods. — serves as the studio on the series, produced by Dakota Pictures. The project stems from Cullari and Raite’s first-look deal with Blumhouse. The duo executive produce 12 Deadly Days with Troy Miller of Dakota, Josh Miller and Pat Casey.
The cast of the series includes Betty Gabriel (The Purge: Election Year), Kaitlin Doubleday (Empire), Dohn Norwood (Hell on Wheels), and Tom Lenk (Buffy the Vampire Slayer), along with such top YouTube personalities as Anna Akana, Burnie Burns, Timothy DeLaGhetto, Brittany Furlan, Tre Melvin, Mikey Murphy, Eric Ochoa, Nikki Limo, Troy Pindell, Meghan Rienks, Jake Roper and Alexis Zall.
