Chatham resident Bob Higgins works as an executive television producer for Fremantle Media. One year after being nominated for his production work on "The Ricky Gervais Show," Higgins is now preparing for the television premiere of "My Babysitter's a Vampire," airing Friday on The Disney Channel.
The series, taken from the Canadian television film from 2010, "My Babysitter's a Vampire" is a comedic spin on pop culture vampire movies about three teens who discover their babysitter is a vampire, and have to save the town.
The series premiers Friday at 7 p.m. The idea for the film was generated by Fresh TV and Disney Channel will have a summer series premiering June 27 at 7 p.m.
Higgins said, "I love how this movie and series turned out. The team at Fresh [TV] put a fun, irreverent spin on a genre that has been getting a lot of play in the adult television space, but no one has yet done for kids and tweens."
When asked what he liked best about the idea, Higgins said, "Kids love to be scared and this is just the right level of scary for them. It's also very funny and has great characters and a great story, and I think parents will like it too."
The trailer for this film is available for viewing on YouTube.
