Horror entertainment news site DreadCentral.com has partnered with theStream.tv for a new web-based show called “Dread Central Live,” dedicated to covering all aspects of the horror genre.
The weekly half-hour show premieres Monday, Feb. 3, at 7 p.m. ET, 4 p.m. PT at www.thestream.tv, and will be hosted by veteran genre journalist Staci Layne Wilson, filmmaker Vanessa Gomez and “Goth Queen” writer-producer “Jill Kill.” The show was created for and distributed exclusively on leading video-sharing platform Dailymotion.
“’Dread Central Live’ is the natural evolution of DreadCentral.com,” said DreadCentral.com editor in chief Steve Barton. “Utilizing the latest technology and interactivity, we can give our fans another resource to stay current with the horror community.”
“We’re thrilled to be partnering with DreadCentral, one of the most respected genre media outlets,” said Susan Wrenn, CEO of theStream.tv. “’Dread Central Live’ will allow fans to not only keep up with all things horror, but also help shape the content of the show in real time.”
Wilson and Gomez will guide viewers on a weekly journey of the latest horror news with updates, interviews, exclusive clips, trailer premieres and exclusive coverage from set visits for horror feature films and TV shows in production. During the interview portions of the show, fans can submit questions via Twitter and Facebook, moderated by “Jill Kill,” to be asked on-air in real time. Barton will also make appearances occasionally.
