"El Rey Network, the 24-hour English-language cable network founded by filmmaker Robert Rodriguez, has finalized an acquisition deal with Warner Bros. Domestic Television Distribution to license the exclusive off-network cable rights for all episodes of the popular series “Constantine” and “Almost Human,” which will make their basic cable debuts beginning November 2015. Also under this multi-year agreement, El Rey Network will acquire several additional high-profile properties rolling out in 2015 and 2016. This includes the basic cable premiere of “Human Target” plus “V: The Series,” “Mortal Kombat: Conquest,” “Freddy’s Nightmares,” “The Twilight Zone,” “V Miniseries,” and “Night Visions.”
“We are proud to have these extremely popular titles make their off-network cable debuts on El Rey Network,” added Robert Rodriguez, Founder and Chairman, El Rey Network. “This is the kind of distinctive, action-packed content that viewers have come to expect on our air, and these franchises will be the perfect complement to our existing line-up of iconic and thrilling originals and acquisitions.” Financial terms were not disclosed." www.horror-movies.ca/2015/10/freddys-nightmares-returns-to-tv/
"Freddy’s Nightmares” (Premieres in 2015) Based on the Nightmare on Elm Street film series, “Freddy’s Nightmares: A Nightmare on Elm Street the Series” is an anthology show hosted by Freddy Krueger. Krueger sometimes appeared in the episodes, but often he just hosted the strange, “Twilight Zone”-like stories about the residents of Springwood’s nightmares. Episodes consist of two stories, usually with a small character from the first half of the episode becoming the focus of the second half. In an unusual move for an anthology series, many episodes had sequels that documented the further adventures of characters who had appeared in previous episodes."
