Dark Shadows 50th Anniversary on Decades Network; Sitcom Stars on Talk Shows (Week of June 27, 2016)

Dark Shadows

Decades Network, the multicast TV network from Weigel Broadcasting Co. and CBS Television Stations, announced a special anniversary event marking the premiere of the gothic soap opera Dark Shadows. Scheduled for Monday, June 27, this anniversary tribute comes to Decades 50 years to the day of the first broadcast of Dark Shadows in 1966. Twelve of the series' most well-known shows will be featured, including the debut episodes of vampire Barnabas Collins. From the first notes of its distinctly haunting musical theme, to the innovative storylines that transformed daytime television, to its iconic cast of characters, Dark Shadows transported audiences to the mysterious town of Collinsport, Maine, and they never looked back. Decades remembers the premiere of this cult favorite with the 12 episodes that marked the beginning of the Barnabas storyline, one that propelled the daytime series to new heights. The episodes will be presented in groups of three at 9:00am ET, 3:00pm ET, 9:00pm ET and 3:00am ET. Log on to Decades.com to find out where to watch the Decades TV Network.

In addition to the selected Dark Shadows episodes, the Decades original one-hour daily series Through the Decades will present an exclusive interview with Steven August Papa, the proclaimed #1 lifetime fan of Dark Shadows, who shares his childhood love for the show and why he is still hooked many years later. They talk with Walter Podrazik, Television Curator at the Museum of Broadcast Communications in Chicago, about the show's place in TV history. The episode will also feature interviews with cast members Jonathan Frid (Barnabas Collins), Kathryn Leigh Scott (Maggie Evans) and Lara Parker (Angelique Bouchard Collins). Online, Decades.com will present the 1968 Dick Cavett interview with Jonathan Frid. Once thought lost, this rare audio recording is taken from an interview on The Dick Cavett Show not seen on television since it originally aired. The interview covers a variety of topics including the actor's thoughts on researching and playing the vampire Barnabas Collins, a memorable and chaotic press tour he took for publicity, fan mail influencing the show, and his rapport with actress and co-star Grayson Hall who played Dr. Julia Hoffman.
