CW goes for horror/reality


How do you wrap the horror genre into a reality show format? We’ll find out this summer when The CW debuts “13” (working title), an 8-episode series.

“This series is the first to take the horror movie into the reality world. The action takes contestants on a journey with challenges and games designed to frighten them along the way.  Similar to horror films, the challenges will play into our deepest fears and anxieties and will reveal things the contestants never knew about themselves,” said Dawn Ostroff, President of Entertainment, The CW. 

The show’s executive producers are Jay Bienstock and Ghost House Pictures’ Sam Raimi and Robert Tapert.  Ghost House Pictures’ Joe Drake and Nathan Kahane will produce. “13” is produced by Magic Molehill Productions in association with Jay Bienstock Productions and Ghost House Pictures.
