Tweetable Logline:

“Uncle” Alice Cooper hosts a horror anthology comic book series and TV pilot co-created by Tom Sheppard (Annoying Orange)

Elevator Pitch:

Look, we all love anthology series like Tales from the Crypt, The
Twilight Zone and Alfred Hitchcock Presents, but wouldn’t we love them a
LOT more if they were a comic book and TV show hosted by Alice Cooper?

About the Production:

Sheppard came up with Uncle Alice Presents after Alice appeared
guest-starred on The Annoying Orange. Once they found out about their
mutual affection for horror, Alice and Tom knew the next step was a
comic book series and television show.

Uncle Alice Presents is a shock-rock, genre-bending comic book series,
graphic novel, and television pilot featuring Alice Cooper. Each issue
tells a story of the grim and macabre seen through the eyes of Uncle
Alice, the gatekeeper of the netherworld between heaven and hell. The
things Uncle Alice will share are just plain creepy…like, they really
creep him out.

Current Status:

In production.
