Podcast: Tananarive Due and Steven Barnes talk Horror and Hollywood

If you are a writer or an aspiring writer or a fan of horror this is the episode for you. This is another throwback theblerdgurlLIVE episode but it’s one that is actually pretty timely because this week it was announced that my guests Tananarive Due and her husband and writing partner Steven Barnes are going to be Executive Producers on a new show coming to Shudder called Horror Noire.

Now if that sounds familiar that’s because Tananarive Due, Ashlee Blackwell and Danielle Burrows executive produced the Horror Noire Documentary, also on Shudder that was directed by Xavier Burgin. All of this was based on a book by Dr. Robin Means called Horror Noire: Blacks in Horror Films. (And you NEED to watch it!) But this episode was recorded last July when’s not a Revo and her husband Steven came on the show to talk about the work that they were doing with Jordan Peele on his new show at the time the twilight zone.

Tananarive Due and Steven Barnes also wrote for Jordan Peele’s Twilight Zone

In this episode we talk about the process of writing, how they have pitched and sold books and TV shows to Hollywood, including, how they got to write for Season 2 of Jordan Peele’s The Twilight Zone: A Small Town. This episode is full of gems! check it out!
