‘Tales from the Darkside’ coming to The CW
The CW’s next project might be scary for all the wrong reasons.
The network is currently developing a reboot of the fan favorite horror anthology, “Tales from the Darkside,” which ran from 1983 to 1988.
Created by George A. Romero, the original “Tales” was eerie, unnerving and popular enough to spawn a 1990 movie.
Now, The CW is hoping to “reinvent” Romero’s series with Joe Hill — a.k.a., the son of Stephen King — on board as the project’s writer.
According to Variety, the idea is to craft a half-hour series that could debut in the summer of 2014. Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci, the producing pair from the “Star Trek” films and this year’s freshman series hit, “Sleepy Hollow,” are going to EP the new “Tales from the Darkside” along with Mitch Galin, Heather Kadin and Jerry Golod.
