Bloody Disgusting reports that Shudder has announced that production has started on their brand new Creepshow series, with details for several of the episodes including stories and directors. The six-episode first season will also include an adaptation of an unnamed Stephen King story, believed to be Survivor Type, directed by Nicotero. Other stories include:

“By the Silvery Waters of Lake Champlain” by Joe Hill (NOS4A2)
“House of the Head” by Josh Malerman (Bird Box)
“The Companion” by Joe Lansdale (The Bottoms)
“The Man in the Suitcase” by Christopher Buehlman (The Lesser Dead)
“All Hallows Eve” by Bruce Jones (The Hitchhiker)
“Night of the Paw” by John Esposito (The Walking Dead: Webisodes)
“Bad Wolf Down” by Rob Schrab (Monster House)

Executive producer Greg Nicotero said: “Having the opportunity to embrace the spirit of Creepshow and expand on what George and Steve created is, without a doubt, a lifelong dream come true. Having grown up in Pittsburgh, Creepshow lives in a special place for me. I had the good fortune to visit the set as a teenager. I was able to look behind the curtain of filmmaking, and it changed me forever. I’m honored to continue telling the stories in the ‘comic book come to life’ world that fans fell in love with. This fall we will be ‘opening the coffin’ and unleashing upon the world our demented and ghastly stories, crafted by the best in business.

Other episodes will be directed by David Bruckner (The Ritual), Roxanne Benjamin (Southbound, XX) and Rob Schrab (Ghosted, Community). John Harrison, the first assistant director for the original Creepshow and composer of its theme, will direct a story he co-wrote with Nicotero. Nicotero’s company KNB EFX Group will handle the creature and make-up effects. more stories and directors, along with casting, will be announced later this year.
