Bryan Fuller, show runner on NBC’s now wrapped “Hannibal,” is set to write and executive produce a reboot of the 1980s NBC anthology series “Amazing Stories”.
Steven Spielberg produced the original series, and directed its “Ghost Train” pilot along with its World War II-themed double-length episode “The Mission,” but he is not involved in this remake. Amblin TV’s Darryl Frank and Justin Falvey however will be involved as executive producers.
The show ran from 1985 to 1987 and produced 45 episodes in total along with five Emmy award wins, one for guest actor John Lithgow. Filmmakers who took a crack at helming episodes include the likes of Martin Scorsese, Clint Eastwood, Robert Zemeckis, Peter Hyams, Tobe Hooper, Joe Dante, Irvin Kershner, Danny DeVito, Ken Kwapis, Kevin Reynolds, Mick Garris and actors like Burt Reynolds, Timothy Hutton and Bob Balaban.
Fuller is also working on the upcoming Starz drama “American Gods”.
