"Channel Zero" (TV show) is an anthology drama series on Syfy

Season 1

The first installment of this series is set to debut with the six-part "Candle Cove," based on an unnerving tale written by Kris Straub which gained notoriety online as a popular "creepypasta" (user-generated horror stories that are published and passed around the internet). "Candle Cove" 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.

Mike Painter (Paul Schneider "Parks and Recreation") returns to the hometown he left as a kid only to relive the happenings of years ago when his brother was one of five children murdered in a case that was never solved. Old memories return to the surface when one mother's child goes missing after mentioning that she had been watching "Candle Cove," a creepy children's puppet show he used to watch around the time of his brother's murder. Although others remember watching this show, they are startled by the realization that it never truly existed and they had been staring at TV static.

Season 2

"No-End House," the second installment, follows Brian Russell's story of Margot (Amy Forsyth, "The Path"), a young woman who, along with her friends, visits the No-End House — a bizarre house of horrors consisting of a series of increasingly disturbing rooms.

"Channel Zero" is produced by Universal Cable Productions. Independent filmmaker Craig William Macneill ("The Boy," "Henley") directed all six episodes of "Channel Zero: Candle Cove." Showrunner Nick Antosca ("Hannibal," "Friday the 13th," "Teen Wolf"), a novelist and screenwriter, wrote the pilot and serves as executive producer alongside Max Landis ("Chronicle," "American Ultra").
