A new horror podcast is on its way from iHeartPodcasts, Aaron Mahnke’s production banner Grim & Mild and creator/writer Carlos Foglia (Wolfpack, Dan Brown’s The Lost Symbol). The scripted audio thriller Consumed, inspired by Mahnke’s novel of the same name, will consist of 12 episodes with the first two set to premiere on January 31.
The series follows struggling journalist Sarah Simmons who finds herself stranded in a small, idyllic town for a weekend after her unexpected vacation turns into a nightmare. Steeped in history and filled with legends and lore about the woods near the centuries old cemetery, the residents of Danville, New Hampshire soon learn that the past is not always meant to be forgotten. Their tranquil lives will be forever changed, while the hope of a future without terror rests on the shoulders of a stranger who may hold the keys to the past.
