First Trailer for Syfy’s Creepy ‘Channel Zero’

by Cate Lecuyer  |  09.19.2016

Syfy debuted the first trailer for its new horror anthology series Channel Zero, with the first season inspired by the creepypasta story about a kid’s TV show that causes terrible things to happen in the real world.

Creepypastas are user-generated horror stories that are published and shared around the internet, and first season is based on the “Candle Cove” story.

It centers on a psychologist Mike Painter’s (Paul Schneider) obsessive recollections of a mysterious children’s television program from the 1980s, and his ever-growing suspicions about the role it might have played in a series of nightmarish and deadly events from his childhood.

Channel Zero premieres Tuesday, October 11 at 9 p.m.
