What would a TV show starring Twisted Sister’s Dee Snider and GWAR’s Oderus Urungus be like? Well we’re about to find out. According to Deadline, the two singers have joined the cast of horror-themed cable channel FearNet’s first original series Holliston.
For those of you who have no clue what this show is about (like us originally), here’s a quick synopsis of the six episode comedy series starring filmmakers Adam Green (Hatchet 1 & 2) and Joe Lynch (Knights of Badassdom) from Deadline:
“Set in the town of Holliston, Mass., Holliston is described as ‘Wayne’s World meets Saw’ and stars Green and Lynch as lesser versions of themselves. They will play Adam and Joe, two friends chasing the dream of becoming successful horror movie filmmakers while struggling to make ends meet and dealing with life and the opposite sex in their post-college jobs at a cable access station where they also host a late-night movie program called The Movie Crypt.”
In the show, Snider will be playing Adam and Joe’s boss at the cable access station they work. While still taking his job seriously, Snider’s character also fronts a Van Halen tribute band. Win! Now who in the world could the almighty Oderus be playing on TV? Well…himself, naturally. The GWAR frontman is also Adam’s imaginary friend who lives in his closet and gives misguided and offensive advice.
This is sounding like the perfect sitcom…FROM HELL. Holliston will premiere on FearNet in the Spring of 2012.
