Synopsis / Plot
TV Series. A series of made-for-TV movies inspired by B-movies of the 1950s. Rebel Highway was a short-lived revival of American International Pictures created and produced by Lou Arkoff for the Showtime channel in 1994. The concept was 10-week series of 1950s "drive-in classic" B-movies remade "with a '90s edge". Arkoff and Hill invited several directors to pick a title from one of Samuel Arkoff's movies, hire their own writers and create a story that could resemble the original if they wanted. In addition, they had the right to a final cut and select their own director of photography and the editor. Each director was given a $1.3 million budget and 12 days to shoot it with a cast of young, up and coming actors and actresses. Episodes:
