From the Press Release:
The spookiest time of year is fast approaching, and Nerdist and Geek & Sundry are teaming up again for another season of scares during NERDOWEEN, an annual celebration of all things eerie, macabre, and just plain weird. Throughout this ominous season, NERDOWEEN will frighten and entertain once again with a full lineup of ghastly programming on Legendary Digital Networks’ Alpha. See below for just some of the hair-raising highlights:
- “Bizarre States: California”
“Bizarre States” hosts Jessica Chobot and Andrew Bowser are expanding their exploration of the oddball world of the occult, supernatural, and inexplicable with “Bizarre States: California,” a video series building on last season’s “Bizarre States: Los Angeles” with even more hauntings, urban myths, and unsolved mysteries.
- “Vampire: The Masquerade – L.A. By Night”
The “Vampire: The Masquerade – L.A. By Night” chronicle follows after the events of the Vampire: The Masquerade – Bloodlines video game, in which the Camarilla clan failed to install a new Prince of Los Angeles. Since then, they never stopped their attempts to reclaim the city as their own. Another player in the power struggle is clan Ventrue, led by Vannevar Thomas, who has declared himself Los Angeles’ new Prince. Blood, politics, and betrayal sit at the foundation of the City of Angels. This new series stars Erika Ishii (as Annabelle), Cynthia Marie (as Nelli G), B. Dave Walters (as Victor Temple), and Alexander Ward (as Jasper Heartwood), each player representing a different character from a different clan with their own motives and moral drivers. The first two episodes have entertained thousands of fans and received immensely positive responses.
- “The Dark Side”
“The Dark Side” explores the dark and twisted truths lurking behind the most iconic faces of pop culture. From your favorite movies, shows, holidays, cartoons, and even breakfast treats, Jess and Bowser bring you the terrifying truths, salacious details, and behind-the-scenes haunts. New episodes of “The Dark Side” are available now.
- “Bizarre States: California”
- “We’re Alive: Frontier” Season 2
“We’re Alive: Frontier” starts its second season this October. Geek & Sundry’s post-apocalyptic adventure follows a band of survivors as they journey into the infected American Midwest. Based on the award-winning podcast, “We’re Alive: Frontier” features five new characters and countless ways to die! Catch up with the intrepid crew of the Rail Driver and see how long they’ll be able to say “We’re Alive!!!” As a teaser for all fans, Episode 0 will be available to those with and without an Alpha subscription.
- “Nerdist Presents”
The creative team behind “Nerdist Presents” will offer a special “Interview with Other Vampires” that’s sure to be a bloodsucking fun time!
- “Alpha Comic Book Club”
Putting the BOO in comic books, “Alpha Comic Book Club” will be reading horror-themed comics all month long.

Host Dan Casey offers his expertise on must-watch horror anime.
