Shudder Orders Talk Show ‘The Core’ for 10-Episode Season (EXCLUSIVE)

Shudder has ordered “The Core” to series with a 10-episode first season, Variety has learned exclusively.

Shudder, AMC Networks’ subscription streaming service that caters to fans of the horror, suspense, and thriller genres, will debut the new weekly version of “The Core” Nov. 16, with new episodes dropping weekly. The series is described as a weekly dissection of genre filmmaking hosted by director and genre fan Mickey Keating. Alongside filmmakers from the world of horror, Keating examines the onscreen techniques and real-life psychologies that strike fear into our very core.

“’The Core’ is a twisted celebration of the magic of genre filmmaking, and I can honestly say there has never been anything like it,” said Keating. “There’s no outlet that cares as much about the genre fan as Shudder, and I’m thrilled they’ll be bringing ‘The Core’ to the fan community.”

Produced in partnership with Uproxx, each week will feature Keating as he is joined by a special guest from the genre community, including acclaimed DJ and music producer Flying Lotus AKA Steven Ellison, actor and producer Elijah Wood, Canadian cult favorites The Soska Sisters, and filmmaker Rodney Ascher.

“Our members not only love to watch horror films and series, they want to know everything they can about the process of making the stuff they love. Shudder is dedicated to offering fans programming that they won’t get anywhere else. ‘The Core’ is the very definition of a Shudder Original: clever, insightful, and with a unique approach to the genre and its history that fans can truly appreciate,” said Owen Shiflett, vice president of development for Shudder.
