Tales from the Darkside is coming back to life on The CW, according to Deadline. The network’s planning to reboot the George A. Romero anthology series with Alex Kurtzman, Roberto Orci and Joe Hill on board as executive producers. Hill is also set to write the series.
The original half-hour horror series ran from 1983 through 1988. Among the writers and directors who worked on the show were Tom Savini, Bob Balaban, and Stephen King. In an interesting tie-in between the old and the new, the reboot’s executive producer/writer Joe Hill is King’s son.
Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci’s credits include Sleepy Hollow, Transformers, the new Star Trek films, and The Amazing Spider-Man 2.
