Cinematic legends Roger and Julie Corman are getting their own series.
Shout! Factory is launching Cult-Tastic: Tales from the Trenches with Roger and Julie Corman on November 15th on their Amazon Prime Video Channel and via Roku Channel’s Premium Subscription.
“It makes total sense to be Shout! Factory TV’s first original streaming series,” said Roger and Julie Corman. “Over the course of seven decades, we have had the great fortune to work on incredible independent film productions with some of the most distinguished actors, writers, and filmmakers of our time. Shout! Factory TV is the perfect place to share our memories, allowing us to bring our stories to life and share them with a passionate audience. Shout! Factory TV’s focus on cult classic film and TV programming makes them the perfect home for this rich history of independent film.”
The 13-part series will look at the life and work of Roger and Julie Corman, provides viewers an extraordinary look inside the Cormans’ cinematic universe and features extensive in-depth interviews.
The Cormans will draw upon their vast filmography and footage from over 130 films spanning seven decades. Within each episode, the legendary filmmakers share insightful stories and defining moments from their movies, recall talent and young filmmakers they fostered, as well as provide behind-the-scenes perspectives on how they produced some of the smallest budget films that went on to achieve box-office gold.
