Well this doesn’t look like Wayland Avenue. Then again, that doesn’t look much like Zachary Quinto. While Rhode Island is not the specific setting for the series — the action of the supernatural horror series “NOS4A2” (say Nosferatu) takes place in New England and other locations around the country — all filming for the show took place in the Ocean State. This thanks to executive producer Lauren Corrao who graduated from both Classical High and Brown University. The show premieres at 10pm, Sunday, June 2, on AMC.
We first wrote about this project last fall when we stumbled upon the telltale Haddad trailers parked in front of the church at Lloyd and Wayland. (The sneak peak video for season 1, episode 1 features a covered wooden bridge . . . where the heck in Rhode Island is that?)
The premise for “NOS4A2” from Wiki:
NOS4A2 follows Victoria “Vic” McQueen, a young working-class artist who discovers that she has a supernatural ability to track the seemingly immortal Charlie Manx. Manx feeds off the souls of children, then deposits what remains of them into Christmasland — a twisted Christmas Village of Manx’s imagination where every day is Christmas Day and unhappiness is against the law. Vic must strive to defeat Manx and rescue his victims — without losing her mind or falling victim to him herself.
The series is based on the book by Joe Hill, son of Stephen King. Fans of “Lady Dynamite” will be glad to see Ólafur Darri Ólafsson in the part of Bing Partridge.
And like Rosemary, of baby fame, Ms. McQueen turns to her trusty Scrabble tiles for help!
