The first volume of Tales from Beyond, a new paranormal audio drama series featuring Star Trek: Voyager‘s Robert Picardo, is coming soon to audio CD.
Tales From Beyond: Volume 1 will be the first in a series of “creepy audio drama CDs.” Each CD will feature three true stories “relating to hauntings, cryptozoology, UFOS and other paranormal activity (such as premonition of death, astral projection, and wildly improbable coincidence).”
These paranormal tales are performed “in the style of the classic radio dramas from yesteryear.”
Produced by Jim O’Rear and Kevin Herren, other actors involved in Tales From Beyond include: Daniel Roebuck (Glee, The Walking Dead), O’Rear (Star Trek IV, Nashville), Kyle Hebert (Naruto, Resident Evil), Mary Elizabeth McGlynn (Spiderman, Cowboy Bebop), and Betsy Rue (Halloween II, True Blood).
The following three stories will be included in Tales From Beyond: Volume 1:
- The Dead in the House: Following the accidental death of her mother, a young girl and her father move in with his mother-in-law. Before long, the girl makes friends with the ghosts of three entities who reside in an upstairs nursery; though the adults assume that her new “friends” are her three new dolls.
- Twelve Hours to Live: After her husband storms out of the house following an argument, the young woman begins having visions of him in terrible danger. She seeks help from his disbelieving business partner and the police before resolving to rescue him herself.
- Deadly Fortune: A skeptic has his fortune told at a party. As events begin to unfold exactly as the psychic has predicted, his disbelief turns to fear that the psychic’s final prediction, that he will be pursued by a knife-wielding woman, will also come to pass.
“In addition to the audio CD, a feature-length behind the scenes documentary will be released later this year on DVD featuring behind the scenes footage from the recording studio session and exclusive cast interviews.”
