The show, based on creator Adam Green's real life and set in his small hometown of Holliston, MA, follows the lives of Adam and Joe, two friends chasing the dream of becoming successful horror movie filmmakers while struggling to make ends meet and dealing with life and the opposite sex in their post-college jobs at a Boston area cable access station where they also host a late night movie program called "The Movie Crypt."

Did You Know?
The cast of Holliston performed an episode live in front of fans at the Rock and Shock convention in Worcester, MA on October 13, 2012. The script, which Green wrote specifically for the live performance, contained surprise cameos by series guest stars Bill Moseley, Derek Mears, Tony Todd, and Sid Haig. The performance not only received a standing ovation by the packed room of fans but has been cited as a convention game changer in on-line reporting of Rock And Shock. Typically, celebrities only sign autographs at horror conventions, but with the Holliston cast actually performing for their fans and signing for free all weekend, many are rethinking the way conventions should be presented in the future.
