About this show

Set in the suburbs of Washington, D.C., in the mid-1980s, Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa's funny coming-of-age tale centers around Franklin Robertson, a geeky, overweight teenager whose great comfort comes from the horror movies he watches every Saturday at midnight on a black-and-white TV set in his basement, introduced by the enigmatic Doctor Cerberus. He dreams of becoming the TV host's assistant, and of becoming a writer. But first he must survive high school, and that means dealing with his overprotective parents, bullying older brother and clueless teachers.
