...And the Chainsaw Goes To...

Spike To Mount SF&F Awards

from Sci-Fi Wire

Spike TV is set to unveil an awards-show franchise devoted to the booming horror/science fiction genre, according to The Hollywood Reporter. The Viacom-owned cable network is working on Scream 2006, which likely will air in October. Scream is scouting Los Angeles locations to shoot the event in September.

Scream will honor the best in film, TV, video games, comic books and music, with a mix of serious awards for outstanding past and present people or programming to such light categories as highest body count in a movie and best bloodcurdling scream.

Scream fits with Spike TV's strategic shift in favor of action-oriented programming, such as the upcoming series adaptation of the Blade movies.
