If you’re a fan of Holliston and heading to Comic-Con, we have all the details on next week’s panel straight from FEARnet. We also have the latest episode for those that missed it earlier this week, featuring a guest appearance from David Naughton.
“(SANTA MONICA – JULY 11, 2013) –Adam Green, acclaimed genre filmmaker (HATCHET; the upcoming DIGGING UP THE MARROW) and writer, producer and star of FEARnet’s original TV series HOLLISTON, will participate in a special panel and autograph signing at Comic-Con, on Thursday, July 18. The signing will take place from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. in the autograph pavilion, with the panel at 8:30 p.m. Joining Green will be HOLLISTON co-stars Laura Ortiz (THE HILLS HAVE EYES), and Dave Brockie (GWAR frontman Oderus Urungus), with series director Sean Becker (THE GUILD). The panel will be moderated by fan favorite Alison Haislip (THE VOICE, ATTACK OF THE SHOW). As an added bonus, Green and Brockie will be recording an episode of The Movie Crypt podcast live at the Geek Nation booth on the main convention floor from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m. that same day. A HOLLISTON Season 2 poster signing will occur at the booth immediately following the podcast.
The brainchild of lifelong genre fan-turned-filmmaker Adam Green, HOLLISTON is an irreverent take on the traditional multi-camera situational comedy, aimed at lovers of true horror, sci-fi and pop culture. The series is currently in the middle of its second season—which premiered on June 4—filled with even more heartfelt hilarity and outrageous storylines, and featuring episodes inspired by J-Horror and Found Footage films, an animated episode, and a multitude of guest appearances from genre icons such as Sid Haig, Bill Moseley, Kane Hodder, Derek Mears, Danielle Harris and Bailee Madison. HOLLISTON currently airs Tuesdays on FEARnet, at 10 p.m. ET/7 p.m. PT.
As a special event for fans who attend the panel, the group will unveil the world premiere of series character Lance Rockett’s (Twisted Sister’s Dee Snider) first music video in its entirety. Subsequently, fans can get a behind-the-scenes look at the music video exclusively on FEARnet, on Friday, August 2. The music video will run again during the HOLLISTON marathon on Monday, August 5, with a portion of the video debuting in the Season 2 finale on Tuesday, August 6. The original song, itself, “Love It Down Your Throat,” will be made available for purchase on iTunes right after the season finale airs.
“It feels great to be coming back to Comic-Con with HOLLISTON,” Green said. “The show was all but created for the Comic-Con crowd, mixing horror, Sci Fi, heavy metal and pop culture in a classic sitcom format that was always for ‘them’ and never for ‘us’. It’s incredible to see that the show still resonates so strongly with legions of geeks, like me.”
HOLLISTON is produced by film and television production company ArieScope Pictures, which was founded in 1998 by Green, producer Cory Neal and cinematographer Will Barratt. ArieScope is an industry leader in independent genre fare, and has produced several theatrical titles over the years, including HATCHET, HATCHET 2, FROZEN, SPIRAL, GRACE, CHILLERAMA, HATCHET 3 and the upcoming DIGGING UP THE MARROW.

Holliston Episode 206—Joe’s Soda: “Joe faces a life-sized dilemma when he discovers that his soda has no carbonation in it whatsoever. Also, things get pretty “hairy” when Corri is bitten at the hospital by a strange man that Adam and Joe suspect to be a werewolf. While the boys set out to kill the possible Lycan and prevent Corri from turning into a werewolf herself, Laura is forced to keep watch alone over a very angry and very chained up Corri. Episode 5 guest stars David Naughton (“An American Werewolf In London”).”
