Wonkybot Studios, the award-winning production and podcast division of content and IP holding company Wonkybot Entertainment, today released the highly anticipated second episode of Stewart St John’s horror anthology podcast series Treacherous Tales. The episode is immediately available on wonkybot.com and all major podcast platforms.
In the new episode, titled “What A Doll”, a young woman is given a cursed doll to carry out a plot to murder her ex-boyfriend’s new lover, but learns the cost of tapping into the supernatural might be more than she bargained for.
Wonkybot also dropped a second trailer for the new episode.
Treacherous Tales, which is produced entirely in-house, was given a greenlight for production earlier this year and is Wonkybot’s first scripted podcast series aimed at mature audiences. The move is part of Wonkybot’s initiative to broaden its reach beyond the kids and family audience it’s built over the years, including the award-winning teen drama Tara Tremendous. The new series falls under Wonkybot’s supernatural, thriller, sci-fi & horror brand “Sinister Universe”.
Cast members include Jessica Magers-Rankin as the scorned woman Jenna Browne, Sarah Cronk as her best friend Lori Jackson, and Tanya Rich as the Eastern European occultist Mrs. Burtok. Patrick Young and Laura Schoonmaker round out the supporting cast as Caleb Richards and Madison Taylor.
