SPACE, Canada’s national science fiction, horror and fantasy channel, has issued an official press release announcing that it will debut the documentary series Monster Man on March 14 at 11 pm ET.
Monster Man goes behind the scenes of one of Hollywood’s most respected practical effects workshops, SOTA FX, to witness the creation of bizarre beings and out-of-this world aliens. The series stars Hollywood monster-making veteran Cleve Hall and his family, which includes daughters Constance and Elora and ex-wife Sonja Maddox-Hall. Also featuring will be Cleve’s best friends Roy Knyrim and Johnny Saiko as well as his office manager Cindy Miller.
Hall’s credits include indie-flick production house The Asylum’s movie 2-Headed Shark Attack, which is coming to SPACE later this spring. Throughout his long career he has also worked on big budget films for Paramount, DreamWorks, Warner Brothers and Disney, including How to Train Your Dragon, Sharktopus, Ed Wood and Pee Wee’s Big Adventure.
Hall has also lent his talent to numerous television programs, such as the children’s show Yo Gabba Gabba (for which he received an Emmy nomination) and he has worked with rock bands that include KISS.
The premiere episode of Monster Man, ‘Seeing Double,’ introduces the shows cast at SOTA FX as they face the dual challenge of creating creatures for Friday the 13th director Sean Cunningham and The Asylum. According to SPACE’s press release, Cleve Hall finds inspiration by swimming in shark-infested waters.
The series debut of Monster Man on SPACE follows the second season finale of Face Off before moving to its regular time slot of Wednesdays at 10 p.m. ET, beginning March 21.
