Channel Zero

Channel ZeroChannel Zero: Candle Cove may have concluded on Syfy but there are more Creepypastas to come. In case you didn’t know, a second season – “Channel Zero: No-End House” has already wrapped production. This standalone, six-episode anthology series, inspired by Brian Russell’s Creepypasta, features Margot Sleator, played by Amy Forsyth (“The Path”), a young woman who visits the No-End House, a bizarre house of horrors that consists of a series of increasingly disturbing rooms. When she returns home, Margot realizes that everything has changed. John Carroll Lynch (“American Horror Story”) will co-star.

Nick Antosca again serves as showrunner and executive producer alongside executive producer Max Landis. Budding director Steven Piet (“Uncle John”) directed all six episodes.

Channel Zero: Candle Cove centered on one man’s obsessive recollections of a mysterious children’s television program from the 1980s, and his ever-growing suspicions about the role it might have played in a series of nightmarish and deadly events from his childhood.

What happened to Mike Painter’s twin brother back in the summer of 1988? How is his death connected to Candle Cove, a children’s show which no one seems to remember, and exists only as a whisper of a memory in Mike’s mind? And how are they connected to a mysterious child made of human teeth?

The first six-episode series, which will be directed entirely by Macneill, is based on a popular “creepypasta,” or user-generated viral horror story that originated on the internet.  In an adaptation of Kris Staub’s Candle Cove, the series centers on one man’s obsessive recollections of a mysterious children’s television program from the 1980s, and his ever-growing suspicions about the role it might have played in a series of nightmarish and deadly events from his childhood.

Starring Paul Schneider as Mike Painter: A child psychologist, Painter was a child himself when he witnessed the mysterious disappearance of his twin brother, Eddie, and four other children from their small town, Iron Hill, in 1988. Decades later, he is compelled to return to his hometown to investigate what really happened all those years ago, only to find that it – whatever it was – may be happening all over again.
