Camelot Entertainment Group, Inc. announced today that through DarKnight Pictures it has signed a deal with A&E Television Networks for worldwide television rights to “Never Sleep Again: The Elm Street Legacy.” A&E is the parent company of BIO Channel which will be airing the program.
“Never Sleep Again” is a behind the scenes retrospective on the twenty-five year history of the horror epic, “A Nightmare on Elm Street.” Originally released in 1984, the epic series consisted of nine films and is the third highest grossing franchise of horror films to date with revenues in the area of $500 million. The documentary is narrated by Heather Langenkamp, who played “Nancy Thompson” from the original film, and includes hundreds of interviews from cast and crew members including the “Nightmare” creator, Wes Craven, and Robert Englund, who play the original “Freddy Krueger.”
“Freddy Krueger’s legacy is timeless,” commented Camelot President of Distribution, Jamie Thompson. “BIO is the perfect place to dig into the film and character’s history, revealing the creation of the ultimate nightmare.”
