The series hails from creators Eli Roth and James Frey and DreamWorks Animation. According to the official logline, “An ancient prophecy and a Voodoo Queen put misfit teens in charge of saving New Orleans from the biggest demonic threat it’s faced in almost two centuries. But, honestly? Saving the world might be easier than becoming friends.”
The main voice cast of “Fright Krewe” consists of Sydney Mikayla as Soleil, Tim Johnson Jr. as Maybe, Grace Lu as Missy, Chester Rushing as Stanley, Terrence Little Gardenhigh as Pat, and Jacques Colimon as Belial. The recurring cast in Season 1 included: Vanessa Hudgens, Josh Richards, X Mayo, Rob Paulsen, JoNell Kennedy, Melanie Laurent, Chris Jai Alex, Reggie Watkins, Cherise Boothe, Keston John, Grey Delisle and Krizia Bajos.
Roth and Frey are also executive producers on the series along with Joanna Lewis and Kristine Songco. Shane Acker and Mitchell Smith are co-executive producers. DreamWorks Animation produces.
“Fright Krewe” is one of two so-called “gateway horror” series that DreamWorks has at present. The studio also produces the Apple TV+ series “Curses!,” which was ordered to series at the streaming service back in September and premiered on Oct. 27. That series hails from creators Jim Cooper and Jeff Dixon with John Krasinski serving as an executive producer.
