Back in October 2015 it was announced that Bryan Fuller (Hannibal) will be overseeing a reboot of the anthology series Amazing Stories for Amblin Entertainment and NBC, and now The Wall Street Journal is reporting that Apple has boarded the project for what will be the tech giant’s first foray into original video content.
Amazing Stories was created by Steven Spielberg, and originally ran on NBC between 1985 and 1987, featuring various fantastic, strange and supernatural tales. Directors who contributed to the series included Spielberg, Joe Dante, Martin Scorsese, Clint Eastwood, Robert Zemeckis, Brad Bird, Tobe Hooper, Irvin Kerschner and Tom Holland.
Fuller is set to serve as showrunner on the new take, which has received a ten-episode order, and reportedly has a budget of around $5 million per episode. As yet, there’s no word on how Apple intends to distribute the series.
