Cue the Oak Ridge Boys!
In September, the evil 80s icon known as Elvira will be coming back to the airwaves with a new TV showcase show.
The new series is tentatively called Elvira's Movie Macabre and will feature 26 two hour horror films, hosted by Miz 1988 herself. The show will be distributed in syndication by Trifecta Entertainment, who is all but THRILLED to have been able to snag the Mistress of the Dark for their show. The CEO of Trifecta explained:
"Elvira will be every bit as relevant as the first day she burst onto the scene; a beautiful opinionated woman who always delivers just what her audience expects from her. At Trifecta, we take pride in bringing proven and trusted brands to the syndicated marketplace; Elvira is a time-tested and wildly successful brand unto herself and her new show perfectly exemplifies our strategy."
Uh-huh. Okay. You sure you didn't just hire her because we are in a recession, she is kitschy and she comes on the cheap?
Cause that's what we're thinking!
Well, welcome back, Elvira. Lucky for you, poofy hair is back in again! You should have Snooki on your show to thank her!
