Punch Drunk TV Ep. 72 — Shudder to Think

It’s the middle of October which means Halloween-times are in full effect. DJ SpookNasty and MC Tummy Troubles are extra loopy this week as Aaron was late to record, due to an incredible advance screening of “Thor: Ragnarok,” and Jack was already three drinks in.

Aside from discussing the important topics of the week, they bring back their Movie Corner segment and discuss the awesome horror streaming app all genre fans should check out, AMC’s Shudder.

NEWS HIGHLIGHTS THIS WEEK:

  • “Game of Thrones” stars Peter Dinklage and Charles Dance will executive produce “Qausimodo,” a new TV series adaptation of Victor Hugo’s The Hunchback of Notre Dame. It’s the first drama series to come out of Atrium TV — which is a new association of international streaming and telecommunication platforms that was launched earlier this year. Meaning, the show will air exclusively to a yet-to-be-named OTT overseas.
  • Netflix sorta released some ratings numbers, which it never really does. The streamer says that, on average, more than 8 million viewers have watched at least one season of one series in 24 hours or less.
  • Wyatt Cenac is getting his own late-night show at HBO. The project will be a comedic docuseries where Cenac goes on a “journey to understand some of the big issues of the moment and investigate real-world solutions.” HBO has given the series a 10-episode order and will premiere in the Spring of 2018.
  • ABC Freeform has ordered a new docu-series titled, “Disney’s Fairy Tale Weddings” which will go behind the scenes of different lavish weddings that take place at Disney destinations around the world.
