Hannibal’s Bryan Fuller Reteaming with NBC for Amazing Stories Revival


If you were a fan of 80’s TV series “Amazing Stories,” NBC’s fantasy/horror/sci-fi anthology created by Steven Spielberg, then you should be happy to hear this news. The network is giving it a reboot, helmed by none other than “Hannibal” EP/showrunner Bryan Fuller.

Per EW, Fuller will executive produce and write a pilot script for the project – an hourlong weekly anthology series telling fantastic, strange, and supernatural stories. Apparently Spielberg is not involved.  The new version will be produced by Universal Television with Justin Falvey and Darryl Frank (“Under the Dome,” “Extant”) serving as executive producers along with Fuller.

The original ran for two seasons (1985-87); it earned 12 Emmy nominations and received five awards.

We’ll keep you posted on developments, but our eyes are mostly on Fuller’s other current project: Starz’s upcoming “American Gods,” based on Neil Gaiman’s novel.
