50 States of Fright will explore stories based on urban legends from Colorado, Florida, Iowa, Kansas, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Oregon and Washington, taking viewers into the horrors that “lurk just beneath the surface of our country.” Brosnahan’s episode, called “The Golden Arm,” will also star Fimmel and Marshall Jones, and tell the story of a famous urban legend out of Michigan.
Other episodes are set to star Travis Fimmel, Christina Ricci, Jacob Batalon, Ming-Na Wen, Taissa Farmiga, Asa Butterfield, John Marshall Jones and Ron Livingston.
The series hails from Gunpowder & Sky’s new horror brand, Alter, along with DIGA Studios and POD 3. EPs on the show will be Sam Raimi and Debbie Liebling through POD 3, Van Toffler, Tony DiSanto, Cody Zwieg, Barry Barclay, Tommy Coriale and Chris Mangano.
The prospective show is one of dozens in the works at Quibi, which is slated to launch in April 2020.
