Fangoria: According to The Hollywood Reporter, MASTERS OF HORROR creator Mick Garris and his fellow executive producers Keith Addis and Andrew Deane are backing a new 13-episode, hour-long fright anthology series called FEAR ITSELF, which will air on NBC next summer. Lionsgate is also involved with the show—and since, as we first revealed here, that company had previously signed to co-produce a third MASTERS season, it would seem that FEAR ITSELF is a rebranding of that concept now that it's on a broadcast network instead of cable. It remains to be seen how extreme FEAR will be, since unlike MASTERS, it will presumably have to adhere to Standards and Practices—though its creators plan to employ seasoned practitioners of the terror craft behind the scenes, much as MASTERS did. (The Reporter notes that Lionsgate plans to employ filmmakers who have made horror features under its umbrella, which suggests that Eli Roth and Rob Zombie, among others, are possibilities.) Producers Adam Goldworm and Ben Browning also encore from MASTERS; production is scheduled to begin in early 2008, and we'll keep you posted as talent signs on.
