The CW Looking to Tell New Tales From the Darkside
Man lives in the sunlit world that he believes to be reality. But there is, unseen by most, an underworld populated with pretty teenagers, a network known simply as The CW... the daftside!
With a couple of exceptions, a lot of The CW's shows look exactly the same. It's like young adult heaven. Thankfully we have stuff like "Supernatural" and "Arrow" to counteract most of the nonsense, and it sounds like we just may be adding another show to that duo of goodness... a rehash of "Tales From the Darkside."
According to Deadline, The CW has teamed with producers Alex Kurtzman and Bob Orci and writer Joe Hill for "Tales From the Darkside," a reinvention of the 1980s horror/fantasy/thriller anthology series by George A. Romero. Hill will write the project, which will keep the original series’ 30-minute format, for a summer run consideration. Hill, Kurtzman and Orci will executive produce with Heather Kadin, Mitch Galin and Jerry Golod for CBS TV Studios, where Kurtzman and Orci’s K/O Paper Products is based. The project reunites Kurtzman and Orci with Hill, son of horror master Stephen King. The three previously worked together on Locke & Key, a drama adaptation of Hill’s graphic novel, which went to pilot at Fox.
"Tales From the Darkside, which is in the vein of other genre anthology series like "Amazing Stories," "The Twilight Zone," "The Outer Limits" and "Tales From the Crypt," had a four-year syndicated run and is owned by CBS TV Studios sibling CBS TV Distribution.
Look for more soon!
