Hi kids! Creature Feature has been on a much needed hiatus as we have been very busy upgrading the show for 2016. After 3 years on TV, we felt it was time for some retrofitting in several areas (except for our crappy movies!)
THE NEW LAB SET!
Since Winter of 2015 we have been working on an all new updated lab set, which is nearing completion. It is 2 feet taller than the old one, and will be a bit wider as well once a new Igor cage has been designed. This set includes a computer for Doc and the gang to interact with, and a film vault for Igor to hang out in for a while to hand Doc the latest crappy film offerings! Some of the “classic” aspects of the original set have been maintained as we want to keep that 1970s flavor of the original lab we all grew up with!
We are still keeping the show “old school”, and not jumping into the realm of green screen backgrounds, though we may experiment with GS superimposed material.
OUR NEW STUDIO LOCATION!
As most of you have heard, we have relocated our shooting studio to The Mall of the Bluffs in Council Bluffs, Iowa! We have a wonderful new space with not only a large lab studio to shoot in, but an office, dressing room and very organized storage space. We are looking forward to holding a few events at the mall this year, including a nice chaotic blood drive that should be a lot of fun. The mall also has an annual Halloween event you will not want to miss as well! We are working on a special “mascot” character that kids will be able to visit with at the mall on major holidays… so if your kids are not into Santa or the Easter Bunny, Doc and the gang are pretty sure they will enjoy visiting our special mall pal. For those of you who may recall the “Bad Santa” event we held many years ago, it will be similar creative tomfoolery.
New costumes have been created for the show for Doc and the nurses! We have found a very special friend with professional movie costume designer Carole Zacek, who has been part of costuming teams on recent films such as Quentin Tarantino’s “Hateful Eight” and the new Alexander Payne film “Downsizing” which just did some shooting here in Omaha! The nurses now have outfits that actually fit them very well, and all have a cohesive look to them. Doc’s new lab coat has a neat wide collar and French cuffs, so he will be looking quite spiffy!
NEW TV EPISODES!
We will start shooting new episodes in April, staring with our appearance at Omaha’s CONgregation Exodis (04/23) and with our pals at the Nebraska Reptile Breeders Expo on Sunday, 04/24. (See events page for more info). We should be starting our new lab shoots in May. We are looking to put the show back on TV in the early Fall of this year. Stay tuned for more information as we draw near. We are also looking for interested businesses as commercial TV sponsors for our 2016-17 season, which would run from September 2016 through May 2017, with the show taking summer off the air to backlog episodes.

2016 CAST MEMBERS
Most of your favorite cast members return for 2016, including the return of Nurse Casi from maternity leave! A few familiar faces who have guested on the show over the past three years are slated to return in a larger capacity, and we have a few new faces we sat down with in late 2015 who will play with us as well. Also look for a few of our Kickstarter guests to show up again as well, as they did such dandy jobs with us in late 2015!
2016 CREATURE FEATURE EVENTS!
We are already jammed packed with special events for 2016… and the fun starts with CONgregation Exodus in April and continues through Halloween Free Comic Book Day at Krypton Comics in October! See our Events Page for a rundown of events and special guests we will have in town for you to visit with!
