(Update: The infographic is now animated for absolutely no reason whatsoever. Enjoy!)

It's not easy picking a date to celebrate the birth of DARK SHADOWS. As a daytime drama, the show relied on a ruthless, unforgiving schedule that gave the cast and crew only one day to get things right. The first episode, though, offered a lot more flexibility. There was location shooting, script writing, casting, and multiple days of studio recording — most of which took place during the early weeks of June, 1966. There's a lot there to commemorate, so I decided to take a stab at an infographic that illustrated the inception and impact of these early creative decisions.

Much of this information comes from the Dark Shadows Wikia, IMDB, the DARK SHADOWS books from Pomegranate Press and past research efforts.
