Cinedigm Unveils Content Lineup for Con TV Digital Channel

/ Dec 12, 2014

Con TV debuts its first original movie

In February, Cinedigm announced a deal with Comic-Con organizer Wizard World to launch Con TV, a streaming channel devoted to geeks and pop culture fans — or more specifically, for those within the global “Comic-Con community.” Now the companies have revealed the slate of original series, films, and TV shows acquired for the channel, which will launch in early 2015.

On the originals front, Con TV’s first big exclusive series will be “Fight of the Living Dead,” which it acquired earlier this year. Produced by Alpine Labs and Revolver Picture Company, the faux-reality series follows a group of YouTube stars as they’re left at an abandoned jail and forced to fight-off a simulated zombie apocalypse. The series stars Justine Ezarik (iJustine), Olga Kay, Sam Pepper, Joey Graceffa, Meghan Camarena (Strawburry17), and Iman Crosson (Alphacat), among others.

Cinedigm and Wizard World will reveal additional programming initiatives, original series, and talent partnerships in the coming weeks, the companies said.

As for Con TV’s slate of films and TV shows, here’s the full list, which spans cult TV, sci-fi, horror, and fantasy films, as well as grindhouse classics and foreign martial-arts epics:

Superhero Action: “He-Man And The Masters Of The Universe,” “Voltron,” “Trial of the Incredible Hulk,” “She-Ra: Princess Of Power”

Cult Classics: “Godzilla,” “Death Race 2000,” “Elvira: Mistress Of The Dark,” “Return Of The Killer Tomatoes,” “Beware The Blob,” “Transylvania 6-5000,” “Night Patrol”

Horror: “Evil Dead,” “Re-Animator,” “Hellraiser,” “I Spit On Your Grave” (#1 and #2), “Hellboy: Blood & Iron,” “Rob Zombie Presents The Haunted World of El Superbeasto,” “Ichi The Killer,” “Puppet Master,” “Embrace of the Vampire”

Martial Arts: “Fists of Fury,” “Shaolin,” “Man From Nowhere,” “War of the Arrows,” “Legend of the Fist,” “Yakuza Weapon,” “Blade of Kings,” “Lady Ninja”

Gaming: “Sonic The Hedgehog,” “Super Mario Bros,” “Legend Of Zelda,” “Stargate Infinity,” “Street Fighter Alpha,” “Heavenly Sword”

Sci-Fi/Fantasy Television: UK’s “Being Human,” “Farscape,” “Highlander,” “Demon King,” “Stargate Infinity”

Anime:  “Yu-Gi-Oh,” “Beyblade,” “Digimon,” “Ghost in the Shell,” “High School Of The Dead,” “Saint Seiya,” “Angel Beats,” “Clannad”

These movies and TV shows come from distributors including Starz Digital Media, RLJ Entertainment, DHX Media, The Jim Henson Company, Full Moon Films, Sentai Filmworks, Well Go USA, and Zodiak Media.

Con TV will also feature a selection of movies from famous cult directors like Ed Wood, John Carpenter, and Roger Corman. Other cult films include “Return to Horror High” (which features an early George Clooney), “Arcade” (starring Seth Green), “My Name Is Bruce” (starring Bruce Campbell), “Gingerdead Man” (with Gary Busey), and Tommy Chong’s “Evil Bong” films.

The service will be free and ad-supported — however, a $6.99 monthly subscription will give customers access to exclusive content and various audience rewards. Con TV will launch across connected-TV platforms including Roku, Apple TV, Xbox, PlayStation, and Samsung Smart TVs, as well as on various mobile operating systems.
