iHeartPodcasts and Blumhouse Television has announced the launch of a new scripted, thriller podcast "The Mantawauk Caves." The new show, which features 3D audio and gives listeners a thrilling binaural listening experience, is the third scripted series in a previously announced slate of co-produced podcasts by the two companies. The first two episodes will debut on March 22 alongside an original song, "A Killer Inside," composed, produced and performed for "The Mantawauk Caves" podcast by Lera Lynn. New episodes will be available every Wednesday.

From writer, director and producer Dan Bush (The Signal, The Vault, Tomorrow's Monsters), "The Mantawauk Caves" is a 12-episode audio experience that will tell the story of how two teenage boys' remains ended up in a cave in Mantawauk County, TN in 2007. The podcast will follow the story of Julien Solas, an aspiring writer, who returns home to save his friend, James Fincher, from a death sentence fourteen years after he was convicted for the gruesome murder of these two teenage boys.

"We're honored to continue our long-standing and fruitful relationship with Blumhouse, and collaborate on a slate of new scripted shows, with ‘The Mantawauk Caves,'" said iHeartPodcasts President Will Pearson. "Our listeners crave scripted series that take them into an entirely new universe and out of their day-to-day lives. ‘The Mantawauk Caves' storyline and listening experience with 3D audio will transport our listeners into a thrilling, and at times frightening, universe."

The psychological thriller is produced in association with Psychopia Pictures and will feature a star-studded cast including actor Jonathan Tucker, known for roles in "The Virgin Suicides," "The Texas Chainsaw Massacre" and "Charlie's Angels," alongside Edi Gathegi, a Kenyan-American actor, who starred in "House," "Gone Baby Gone," "Twilight" and "The Twilight Saga: New Moon."
