FEARnet's first scripted show is making a its second season comeback.  Adam Green, Joe Lynch, Corri English, and Laura Ortiz are back with the horror nerds' greatest wet dream, HOLLISTON.  According to "The Hollywood Reporter," The horror-comedy littered with fankid references and 80s rock stars will be released on June 4th on FEARnet.  Created by and starring Adam Green, the series revolves around two aspiring horror filmmakers (working at a low budget cable company) dealing with the trials of life, love, and producing their independent film SHINPADS: The Undead Soccer Team Movie With Bite.  HOLLISTON is an entertaining love letter to the genre that has made Adam Green a household name, and contains some of the most clever dialogue ever heard on a sitcom.  Season two will include ten episodes and feature cameo appearances from horror favorites like Bill Moseley, Danielle Harris, Sid Haig, Kane Hodder, James Gunn, DAVID FREAKING NAUGHTON, and Bailee Madison.  I'm incredibly excited about this because season one was some of the best television I had seen in a very long time.  Outside of maybe The Big Bang Theory, there aren't many shows that embrace the genre geek lifestyle, and HOLLISTON not only embraces the idea, but does it without ever making the fankid the butt of the joke.  Season one is currently available for your viewing pleasure on Hulu, and FEARnet onDEMAND occasionally will show the episodes.
