Blumhouse Productions is looking to expand the catalog of its horror shows on the small screen. Recently, the studio has announced a deal with premium network EPIX. Thanks to the latest partnership, Blumhouse will produce eight standalone horror-thriller movies exclusively for the network.
As of now, Jason Blum, the head of Blumhouse Productions, will serve as an executive producer for all of the movies. The first of the eight movies, titled A House on the Bayou, is currently in early stages of production and the production is expected to begin in late spring.
While we don’t know a lot of details of the new movie, a brief synopsis of the movie states, “The film follows a troubled couple and their preteen daughter who go on vacation to an isolated house in the Louisiana bayou to reconnect as a family. But when unexpected visitors arrive, their facade of family unity starts to unravel, as terrifying secrets come to light.”
A House on the Bayou is currently set to release later this year with rest of the movies coming to the network next year. Talking about the latest partnership, Michael Wright, president of EPIX said, “Blumhouse’s track record of producing high-quality, audience-favorite films have made them a driving force in the horror genre renaissance, and have been top-notch partners for EPIX. We can’t wait to work with Jason Blum and his talented team in this new capacity, and make EPIX the exclusive home of more Blumhouse content.”
Chris McCumber, President of Blumhouse Television added, “This partnership with EPIX is an additional opportunity for us to collaborate with a great team in helping them grow their slate of genre films, while continuing to bring Blumhouse fans the kind of programming they know and love.”
