While co-producing the extremely irreverent, local, late-night, movie of the week program, The Ned the Dead Show (formerly Chiller Theater with Ned the Dead), I helped developed a new segment for the show using public domain footage.

In a time when cable and satellite television offer viewers hundreds of choices, one program in Northeast Wisconsin keeps on giving its audience entertainment with plenty of local flavor.
Ned the Dead is coming up on his 25th Anniversary as he continues to “Spank the Plank,” and deliver forgotten films and cult classics with a “Roll it Lester.”
On Saturday October 25th, Ned the Dead celebrates his 25th Anniversary at DeWane Asylum, a haunted house at 507 N. Broadway, Green Bay.
Ned is marking the event with the winners of an online contest for passes to DeWane Asylum, and hospitality provided by Titletown Brewing Co. The episode of Chiller Theater airing that Saturday night will feature George Romero’s Night of the Living Dead.
Since its birth in the mid-eighties, Ned’s program has undergone many evolutions, and shown up on various stations in the Green Bay television market. Ned the Dead’s Chiller Theater is a production of Midwest OmniMeda under the leadership of executive producer Matt Haney and guidance of creator Steve Brenzel. It currently airs Saturdays at 11pm on WACY 32. The show now features more content than ever including wisecracks and commentary from Ned and his partner Doc Moreau.
The press is invited to join Ned the Dead at DeWane Asylum on October 25th at 8pm.
Interviews with executive producer Matt Haney and Ned’s alter-ego, Steve Brenzel, will also be made available upon request. Call (920) xxx-xxxx to learn more about future plans for Ned the Dead on television and online at nedthedead.com.
