Apple Gets Behind Fuller’s “Amazing Stories”

Apple is set to team with Amblin Television and NBCUniversal for “Amazing Stories,” a reboot of the iconic anthology series reports The Wall Street Journal.

As previously reported, “Hannibal” and “American Gods” creator Bryan Fuller serves as showrunner on the series with ten episodes in total having been ordered. Each episode, which blends genres like fantasy, sci-fi and horror will sport a sizable $5 million budget.

The original series ran for two seasons, won five Emmys, and involved some notable directors for each episode including Steven Spielberg, Clint Eastwood, Martin Scorsese, Irvin Kershner, Robert Zemeckis, Brad Bird and Joe Dante.

The announcement follows in the wake of Apple recently hiring Zack Van Amburg and Jamie Erlicht from Sony Television specifically to create original programming for the tech giant. How this original content will be distributed remains unclear at this time.
