CW Reboots “Tales from the Darkside”

The CW is said to be considering a reboot of the 1980s horror anthology series “Tales From The Darkside”.

“Horns” author Joe Hill is attached to pen the project for CBS TV Studio. “Sleepy Hollow” producers Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci are attached to executive produce alongside Mitch Galin, Heather Kadin and Jerry Golod.

The CW is considering the reinvention as a Summer 2014 event series, each episode would be half an hour.

The original series initially grew out of plans to adapt horror anthology feature “Creepshow” for television. Running from 1984 to 1988, short stories by famed authors like Stephen King, Harlan Ellison, Clive Barker, Frederik Pohl and Robert Bloch were included.

A surprisingly gory film version of the show was produced in 1990 featuring three separate stories.
