FEBRUARY 28, 2019 — Proving once again that “the drive-in will never die,” iconic horror host and exploitation movie aficionado Joe Bob Briggs is back with an all-new The Last Drive-In with Joe Bob Briggs series exclusively on Shudder, the AMC Networks premium streaming service for horror, thrillers, and the supernatural announced today. The nine-episode original series will consist of weekly double features streaming live every Friday night at 9:00 p.m ET/ 6:00 p.m. PT, beginning March 29 and concluding on Friday, May 24, Memorial Day Weekend. Each episode will also be made available on demand at a later time. The Last Drive-In series marks Briggs return to weekly on-screen appearances for the first time since ending his run on TNT’s MonsterVision in 2000.
“We’ve had The Last Drive-In 24-hour marathon, The Last Drive-In Thanksgiving marathon, and The Last Drive-In Christmas marathon, but the Shudder audience kept asking for some kind of programming that didn’t require sleep deprivation and controlled substances,” said host Joe Bob Briggs. “The double features we chose for the weekly series range over five decades and include everything from classics to obscurities to foreign cult offerings, with a handful of guests who have agreed to play around with us in our Texas trailer park. I don’t want to say we got carried away with the possibilities here, but we kind of got carried away with the possibilities here.”
The Last Drive-In with Joe Bob Briggs series is produced by Matt Manjourides and Justin Martell and directed by Austin Jennings.
