KIEFER SUTHERLAND AND JOEY KING STAR IN "THE CREEPSHOW HALLOWEEN SPECIAL," BASED ON STORIES BY STEPHEN KING AND JOE HILL

The Fully Animated Special, Directed by Greg Nicotero, Premieres Just In Time for Halloween on October 26, Exclusively on Shudder

NEW YORK, NY - September 24, 2020 - Shudder, AMC Networks' premium streaming service for horror, thriller and the supernatural, today announced Kiefer Sutherland (24, Designated Survivor) and Joey King (The Kissing Booth, The Act) as the voice cast for The Creepshow Halloween Special, premiering October 26.

"Survivor Type," based on the short story by Stephen King and adapted by Nicotero, stars Sutherland as a man determined to stay alive alone on a deserted island no matter what the cost. "Twittering from the Circus of the Dead," based on the short story by Joe Hill and adapted by Melanie Dale, stars King as a teen whose family road trip includes a visit to the gravest show on earth.

"Halloween wouldn't be complete without Creepshow, so with the help of the father and son team of Stephen & Joe as well as a fantastic animated format, we get to continue the tradition and spirit of Halloween," said Nicotero.

"Although season 2, now in production, has been delayed due to Covid, Greg and his team were still able to pull off this fantastic special so everyone will be able to enjoy a little bit of Creepshow during Halloween season," said Craig Engler, Shudder's General Manager.
