Crazy Fun Park to screen in USA

Logie-winning comedy-horror series Crazy Fun Park will air in the United States after being acquired by streaming giant Hulu.

The ABC ME series is scheduled to premiere Sunday 1 October as part of Hulu’s “Huluween” programming.

Crazy Fun Park tells the story of two best friends, Chester and Mapplethorpe, so close that even death can’t keep them apart. After Mapplethorpe is killed at an abandoned theme park, Chester discovers that his friend’s soul has stuck around, along with the ghosts of other teenagers who have died at the fun park since 1979.

The series will premiere in a number of different territories over the coming months after being acquired by broadcasters in Spain, Finland, Norway, Lithuania, Belgium, Slovenia, Taiwan, New Zealand and the United Kingdom.

ACTF CEO Jenny Buckland said: “Crazy Fun Park is a clever, funny and unique series, full of horror and humour interwoven with a moving narrative about friendship and grief and pop culture references that appeal to a wide demographic. Set in an eerie world full of ghosts and ghouls, Crazy Fun Park takes audiences on a wild and unforgettable ride, and we know that US audiences will enjoy every minute of it.”

The series is produced by Werner Productions.
