It looks as if Chiller is going to be bringing us a few great pieces of programming in the early months of 2013! Anyone who grew up with R.L Stine is going to be excited about the first show which will be returning this month and after that? Well, we’ll have the return of Chiller’s smash hit ‘Most Horrifying Hookups’ and let’s be honest, anything with Colin Ferguson always proves to be an entertaining watch. Honestly, though, for me the most important announcement comes in March as ‘Pushing Daisies’, which a “few” of my friends have raved about, is finally being aired again for the first time since it’s original airing on ABC. As I’ve never had a chance to watch this series, I’ve been eagerly awaiting this release for quite some time.
Chiller has been making a name for itself as one of the two channels devoted to fans of the Horror genre. It has also been getting a lot of positive press being under the same NBCUniversal division that the Syfy channel falls under (hence the reason why you see certain actors like Colin Ferguson show up on both networks). It’s a great channel and as a viewer, one can only hope that these new listings are just the beginning of announcements of original new programming to match the amazing work that the Syfy network is currently putting out!
Here’s the press release announcing Chiller’s Winter Schedule:
NEW YORK – January 4, 2013 – Chiller kicks off a new year of scary good programming with the debut of its first original special of 2013, Chiller 13: Most Horrifying Hookups. In addition, this winter the network will feature two new-to-Chiller debuts with R.L. Stine’s The Nightmare Room and cult favorite Pushing Daisies, which marks the first re-air of this series since its original run.
