Brandon Scott and Maria Sten join Channel Zero: The Dream Door!
Syfy and Universal Cable Productions have revealed the title and cast for the fourth installment of their horror anthology series Channel Zero. Brandon Scott (Grey’s Anatomy) and Maria Sten (Straight Outta Compton) are set to star in Channel Zero: The Dream Door, along with Steven Robertson (Elementary) and Steven Weber (Wings), which is slated to premiere on Syfy later this year.
Based on the “creepypasta” short story Hidden Door by Charlotte Bywater,Channel Zero: The Dream Door follows newlyweds Jillian (Sten) and Tom (Scott), who have each brought secrets into their marriage. When they discover a strange door in their basement, those secrets start to threaten their relationship — and their lives.
Sten’s Jillian Hope Hodgson is a landscape designer who has just married her childhood best friend. They’ve just moved into the house where he grew up — a house they hope to transform, through their combined skills, into their dream home.
Scott’s Tom Hodgson, is Jillian’s husband (and childhood best friend), a capable and thoughtful man who is deeply in love with his wife. But he’s troubled when secrets from their past threaten the marriage.
Robertson will play Ian, Tom and Jillian’s next door neighbor, an open-minded psychology grad student who becomes involved in Tom and Jillian’s bizarre experience with the mysterious door in their basement.
Weber will recur as Abel Carnacki, Jillian’s therapist. He has been listening to Jillian long enough to know about her trust issues and where they stem from. His quiet, controlled, almost hard to read tone is sometimes infuriating for Jillian, especially when she tries to talk to him about what — or who — was behind the door in their basement.
