Starting March 29th, horror fans and Shudder subscribers will be in for a weekly treat. “The Last Drive-In With Joe Bob Briggs” is set to air every Friday exclusively on the Shudder streaming service.
The nine-episode original series will consist of weekly double features streaming live every Friday night at 9:00 p.m ET/ 6:00 p.m. PT,beginning March 29 and concluding on Friday, May 24, Memorial Day Weekend. Episodes will also be made available on demand at a later time.
“We’ve had The Last Drive-In 24-hour marathon, The Last Drive-In Thanksgiving marathon, and The Last Drive-In Christmas marathon, but the Shudder audience kept asking for some kind of programming that didn’t require sleep deprivation and controlled substances,” said Briggs. “The double features we chose for the weekly series range over five decades and include everything from classics to obscurities to foreign cult offerings, with a handful of guests who have agreed to play around with us in our Texas trailer park. I don’t want to say we got carried away with the possibilities here, but we kind of got carried away with the possibilities here.”
“The Last Drive-In with Joe Bob Briggs” series is produced by Matt Manjourides and Justin Martell and directed by Austin Jennings.
