'Once Upon a Time' Co-Creators to Work on Apple's 'Amazing Stories' Reboot
One of Apple’s upcoming original television shows is a reboot of Steven Spielberg’s “Amazing Stories,” a science fiction and horror series that originally ran from 1985 to 1987.
For the new version of “Amazing Stories,” Apple has inked a deal with “Once Upon a Time” co-creators Adam Horowitz and Edward Kitsis, who are set to serve as executive producers and show runners on the series.
Horowitz and Kitsis are joining “Amazing Stories” following the February departure of Bryan Fuller, the original showrunner. Fuller reportedly left the project due to creative differences with Apple. While he wanted to turn “Amazing Stories” into a Black Mirror-style show, Apple is aiming for something more family friendly.
The two producers have previously worked on shows that include “Popular,” “Felicity,” “Lost,” and “Once Upon a Time,” and they have been involved with “Tron: Legacy.” “Once Upon a Time,” which they created in 2011, is perhaps the most well-known series the two have collaborated on.
“Amazing Stories” is a show that’s similar to series like “Tales From the Crypt” and “Twilight Zone,” with a new topic explored during each episode. Apple has ordered 10 episodes of “Amazing Stories,” but as with all of the company’s original television shows, it’s not entirely clear when we’ll see a debut. Rumors have suggested the first of the shows could launch in 2019.
