As mentioned, The Birch is the first of a five-show content which is being produced in joint collaboration of Crypt TV with Facebook Watch.
This one counts as first-of-its-kind deal for the social network, which is usually signed for one show at a time. The duo hasn’t released the plot yet or much from the cast details, but it’s expected that the series will be coming in 10 episodes each, and will be produced by Crypt TV execs including co-founder Jack Davis, Kranz, and Darren Brandi. Independent studio Wiip, founded by former ABC president Paul Lee, will also be a part of the produce group.
