Horror Reality TV From RaimiGoon
The CW will soon be showing eight episodes of a new horror-themed reality show, 13. The series will be executive produced by Sam Raimi, Rob Tapert and reality vet Jay Bienstock. Variety reports the show will utilize horror-themed challenges to knock players off one by one, until just one is left, having survived all that bloodshed.
They are still deciding on what setting the show will be done in. Some possible examples given in the trade are an evil town, a lakeside retreat with a creepy secret, and an abandoned cabin in the forest.
Bienstock commented, "We want to cast it like a horror movie," he said. "And shoot it a little differently as well. Think about those old movies -- we want to put people in a place like that, where they have to deal with their fears and anxieties. They'll end up surprising one another."
