Egomaniac director Kate Shenton’s long-awaited new web series Netfl!X And Kill will make its first appearance on YouTube this Saturday (August 4th) thanks to Hex Studios.
A darkly humorous take on what has become the norm in the televisual realm (think Gogglebox with a horror twist), Netfl!X and Kill is the story of a psychopath and his victim, who just sit around and watch TV. The stars of Kate’s festival hit Egomaniac, Adam Rhys-Davies and Nic Lamont, return for this eight-part series that will appear every Saturday on Hex Studio’s YouTube channel.
According to Kate, “Netfl!X and Kill is inspired by my love for British TV comedy, shows like The Royle Family, Fawlty Towers, Extras, Blackadder, and basically anything by Victoria Wood. For Netfl!X and Kill, I wanted to make something that had that classic British television comedy feel - but adding a horror twist to it!”
With more than 200,000 subscribers, the Hex Studios YouTube channel is fast becoming the go-to channel for indie horror, from their viral Owlman prank videos to creepypasta tales, original web-series and even feature films.
Hex Studios head Lawrie Brewster sees an exciting future for the channel as a “massive and still growing platform for unique, independent voices in the horror genre. We believe 100% in Kate Shenton's talent and vision, and we're excited to be able to share her twisted creations with as wide an audience as possible!”
