Are you ready for the return of Tales from the Darkside? Well, get ready because there’s some real talent behind it…
CW are developing an all-new anthology series based on the old TV show(s) and they’ve just went ahead with the pilot order.
The first episode will be scripted by Joe Hill, one of FTN’s favourite writers (Horns, NOS4A2, Heart-Shaped Box), and that alone is reason enough to tune in. It will be produced by Hill, Alex Kurtzman, Roberto Orci and Heather Kadin, Mitch Galin and Jerry Golod.
The series originally ran from 1984-1988 and was created by George A. Romero and had horror icons like Tom Savini, Robert Bloch, Cliver Barker, Harlan Ellison and Stephen King involved .
Stephen King, for those who don’t know, is Joe Hill’s father, so it’s something of a family tradition.
We’ll be keeping a close eye on this one…
