C13Features, the new podcast movie studio division of Cadence13, a leading premium podcast company and division of Audacy, today unveiled the trailer for its first highly anticipated feature-length podcast movie, Treat, starring award-winning actress Kiernan Shipka. C13Features has partnered with Babak Anvari and Lucan Toh of Two & Two Pictures, and Best Case Studios, to co-produce.

Written by Nathan Ballingrud, in partnership with Babak Anvari and Lucan Toh of Two & Two Pictures, and co-produced with Best Case Studios, Treat tells the story of a seemingly perfect American town on one Halloween night when its idyllic image is threatened by its buried evil past and terrifying pact with the Piper, the town’s sinister outcast. Shipka stars as protagonist and narrator Allie West, a teenager dealing with issues beyond her years while struggling to fit in. But when she learns about the mysterious Piper’s powerful hold on the town, she, along with her younger brother, realize they are the only ones who can save their community before it rots at the hands of the Piper.
Along with Shipka, the cast of Treat includes Sara Echeagaray, David Shih, Noah Robbins, Marc Menchaca, Kyle Beltran, Peggy J. Scott, Christa Scott-Reed, Ryan Buggle, Bill Lobley, and Renata Friedman, with Marin Ireland and Wayne Knight in featured roles.
Shipka, along with Chris Corcoran, Chief Content Officer and co-founder of Cadence13, also serves as an Executive Producer of Treat.
Shipka most recently played the title role of Sabrina Spellman in Netflix’s Chilling Adventures of Sabrina, and starred as Sally Draper on seven seasons of the Emmy-winning drama Mad Men. She appeared in FX’s Feud: Bette and Joan, and is starring in the upcoming HBO series The White House Plumbers and Roku limited series Swimming with Sharks. Shipka won a Screen Actors Guild award in 2009 and 2010 for Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble in a Drama Series for Mad Men.
Anvari and Toh of Two & Two Pictures have previously collaborated on Anvari’s features, Under The Shadow, and Wounds, as well as the Hulu limited series, Monsterland. They are currently in production on Anvari’s next feature, the Netflix thriller, I Came By.
