Written by Plaza, Darcy Fowler, Kieran Valla, and Seth Kirschner, Nightmare Time is set in Aubrey Plaza’s Nightmare Clinic, where celebrity guests check in to overcome recurring nightmares.
According to the logline: Every episode features two insane nightmares, inspired by the horrors of modern society and uses tropes and touchstones of the horror genre to guide audiences through its absurd universe. Thanks to advanced technology, we’re able to peer into their restless minds, and witness their nightmares in real time. But what is “real” anyway? Maybe it’s all just a nightmare in Aubrey’s mind. One endless nightmare that could eventually destroy her and the entire world.
Plaza, who is a series regular on FX’s X-Men-themed drama series Legion, will guest star in the pilot and executive produce. Valla, Kirschner and Fowler co-executive produce.
TVLine first reported the pilot order.
