For those who want to talk after they scream, MTV has announced an aftershow for its sophomore adaptation of the horror film franchise. Scream After Dark! will premiere on the cable net Monday at midnight ET/9 PM PT after the Season 2 bow of Scream.
Scream After Dark! will be hosted by actor and author Jeffery Self, who will sit down with cast members, screen behind-the-scenes footage and discuss all things Scream. Self has guested on such series as 30 Rock, Desperate Housewives and 90210 and co-starred on Logo’s Jeffery & Cole Casserole. He also hosts the podcast This Is Really Important and has written novels including the recently published YA title Drag Teen. He is repped by ICM Partners and Avalon Management.
Aftershows have become a regular on TV since AMC launched The Walking Dead postmortem Talking Dead in 2011. Programs followed by the companion series have included HBO’s Game of Thrones, BBC America’s Orphan Black, FX’s Sons of Anarchy and Discovery’s Shark Week. Anyone want to start a pool on how long before an aftershow gets its own aftershow?
