    NBC Announces New Horror Anthology Featuring Steve Niles, Dan Knauf, Brandon Routh

    NBC is producing FEAR ITSELF, a new 13-episode horror and suspense anthology series. It’s a big collab project between a lot of Hollywood writers, directors and actors, including several from the comics world. Steve Niles (30 Days of Night), Dan Knauf (Invincible Iron Man) and Brandon Routh (Superman Returns) are all attached, though none are working on the same episode.

    “Community” is directed by Mary Harron (”American Psycho,” “The Notorious Betty Page,” “Big Love”) and written by Kelly Kennemer (”The Music Within”). When a young married couple, played by Routh and Appleby, find the perfect house in the perfect neighborhood, their lives seem…well…perfect. But as the dark
    underbelly of their neighborhood creeps to the surface, they soon realize that their neighbors will go to any extreme — even murder — to make sure that they
    comply with their twisted sense of conformity. John Billingsley (Star Trek: Enterprise”) also stars.

    “New Year’ s Day” will be directed by Darren Bousman (”Saw II, III and IV”), and is written by Steve Niles (”30 Days of Night”) from a story by Paul Kane. A
    young woman wakes up in a post-apocalyptic world overrun by horrifying zombies.

    “Family Man” will be directed by Ronny Yu (”Freddy vs. Jason,” “Bride of Chucky”) and is written by Dan Knauf (”Carnivàle,” “Supernatural”). This action-charged,
    psychological thriller focuses on a likeable family man who switches bodies with a serial killer after a near-death experience. Now, he must fight from behind bars
    to keep the murderer from adding his family to the long list of victims.
