Inspired by creepypastas, or modern horror urban legends spread on the internet, the series adapted popular online paranormal stories in self-contained six-episode seasons with rotating casts and directors each season. The series was produced by Universal Cable Television and received a full series order from Syfy in 2015. The fourth and final season concluded this past Halloween.

Prior to his work on Channel Zero, Antosca served as a co-producer and writer on the third and final season of the NBC thriller series Hannibal and as a writer on MTV's recent Teen Wolf revival. In addition to his work in television and film, Antosca is an acclaimed horror novelist.
