Danielle Campbell (The Originals) has been cast as one of the three leads in Scream-screenwriter Kevin Williamson’s new series Tell Me a Story. The show is set in modern-day New York City and takes beloved fairy tales and reimagines them as a dark and twisted psychological thriller.

The first season interweaves “The Three Little Pigs”, “Little Red Riding Hood”, and “Hansel and Gretel” into an epic and subversive tale of love, loss, greed, revenge, and murder.

Campbell will play Kayla, who Deadline says is “beautiful and full of anger” and “has just moved from Oakland to New York with her dad. She lost her mother a year ago and since then has strayed from her once promising path — hanging with the wrong crowd, partying… anything to distract from the pain and grief of her mother’s death.”

Kim Catrall Catrall plays Kayla’s grandmother.

CBS All Access’ straight-to-series show is written by Williamson and co-stars Billy Magnussen. Williamson executive produces with Kapital’s Aaron Kaplan and Dana Honor. Liz Friedlander directs the first two episodes and executive produces.
