It has been announced that the actor will resurrect frightening and creepy stories ripped from the headlines of yesteryear in the new series Shadows of History. With the help of historians and scholars, Englund will look at stories that seem too incredible to be true. The six-episode series will air later this year.
“How can you make fascinating and petrifying stories even more scary? Add the genius of Robert Englund,” said Jane Latman, general manager, Travel Channel, in a statement. “As if tales of flying monsters, zombie cannibals and ghost ships were not enough, we are cranking up the volume for maximum impact. And our fans are going to go nuts for this legendary actor.”
