If you're a fan of horror anthologies, today is your day. The CW is developing a new series which will be a modern take on the classic TV show Tales from the Darkside!
Tales from the Darkside was a 1980s horror anthology show from the mind of zombie legend George A. Romero, director of the original Night of the Living Dead. Similar to The Twilight Zone and The Outer Limits, every episode of TFTD told a different short story spanning the genres of horror, sci-fi and fantasy.
The remake currently under development is being written by horror author Joe Hill, who just happens to come from an impressive horror pedigree: His dad is Stephen King.
The project is also being produced by some of the best executive producers in Hollywood with Sleepy Hollow and Star Trek producers Roberto Orci and Alex Kurtzman.
Not much more is known about the project at this point, but the official logline says the new Tales from the Darkside will be a "reinvention of the horror/fantasy/thriller anthology series."
