According to a story in Variety, The new SyFy show will be kicking off with “Channel Zero: Candle Cove.” “Candle Cove” is inspired by a story written by Kris Straub, which made a big splash online under the name “creepypasta.”   “Channel Zero: Candle Cove” focuses on a man who keeps recalling a mysterious children’s TV program from the 1980’s. He becomes convinced that the show had a more sinister purpose and may have in fact played a role in a series of murders during that time. Also according to Variety, the new show is created by Nick Antosca (“Hannibal,” “Teen Wolf”), who wrote the pilot episode and Max Landis (“Chronicle,” “American Ultra”). Both Landis and Antosca will also serve as executive producers on the new SyFy series.
