Eerie, Indiana was an American children's horror-fantasy series created by José Rivera, and Karl Schaefer for NBC. It ran for one season.
Marshall Teller (Omri Katz) is a normal kid in a very abnormal town: Elvis lives down his street, Bigfoot roots through his trash and everyday life is a litany of aliens, zombies, ghosts and other weirdness. While his family are oblivious to the strangeness that surrounds them, Marshall documents his adventures with his best friend, Simon (Justin Shenkarow), who seems to be the only other normal kid that's aware of what's going on. Later they were joined by the occasionally antagonistic tearaway Dash X, a prematurely grey-haired teenager who has no idea where he came from. Their adventures included dealing with a plot by the city's dogs to eat everyone; a lottery in which the 'winner' is fed to the town's werewolf; a strangely unaging family and a girl who can create whatever she wants just by drawing it.
Westphall connections to Eerie, IndianaEdit
- Chance Harper, the protagonist in Strange Luck, mentions that he sold photographs to the Eerie Examiner, Eerie, Indiana's newspaper.
- Good ratings for Eerie, Indiana repeats led to the creation, in 1998, of a spin-off: Eerie, Indiana: The Other Dimension. It used stock footage from the old show to introduce viewers to a parallel dimension in which Marshall and Simon are played by different actors.
