Stage and screen star Ellen Greene, who created the role of the lovably ditzy Audrey in the Off-Broadway production of Little Shop of Horrors and later preserved her critically acclaimed work in the Frank Oz film, can be seen in a new series for the streaming subscription service YouTube Red, which is entitled 12 Deadly Days. (The trailer can be viewed above.)
The series, which makes its debut December 12, tells "12 interconnected stories about the residents of Saturn, Calif., who find themselves terrorized by killer carolers and cursed fruitcakes in the days leading up to Christmas," according to the Hollywood Reporter.
Greene, also known for her work in the Emmy-winning ABC series Pushing Daisies, plays the role of Sarah — the librarian of Saturn, who can see and talk to ghosts and resurrect small animals — in a cast that also includes Betty Gabriel, Kaitlin Doubleday, Dohn Norwood, Tom Lenk, Anna Akana, Burnie Burns, Brittany Furlan, Meghan Rienks, and Alexis Zall.
About her latest role, Greene told Playbill.com, "She was funny, sweet, and kind and quite a lovable person to play. With her strange powers she helps these two brothers, the Cratchit boys, discover and solve the reasons for some of the hellish goings-on in Saturn. She also has a son with a problem." Her episodes will premiere December 15, 22, and 23.
The horror-comedy from Blumhouse Television is executive-produced by Chris Cullari and Jennifer Raite and produced by Dakota Pictures. The service is currently offering free viewing for a month; click here for more information.
