TV networks have jumped on the horror band wagon lately, airing new shows with roots in the genre. Hulu, like Netflix, is adding new original horror series and films. Today we can report that Hulu is adding two new original horror series to their programming. Both new series are from Paramount Television and Anonymous Content.
The first project, Citizen, is said to be a fresh take on the hero origin story. The series will blend magic and vigilantism in supernatural Los Angeles. The script will be penned by Alfornso Gomez-Rejon, Josh Pate and Nicholas Schutt and will be directed by Alfonso Gomez-Rejon.
The second series titled When the Street Lights Go On is based on the script written by Chris Hutton and Eddie O’Keefe and directed by Brett Morgan, according to Variety. The show is a coming-of-age thriller that takes place in a small town rocked by the murder of a high school student and a teacher in the 1980’s.
The premiere dates for both series should be announced soon.
