As a kid, one of my favorite things to watch was reruns of Steven Spielberg’s Amazing Stories. The series featured episodes that were everything from sci-fi to horror and was directed by the who’s who of directors including Martin Scorsese, Tom Holland, Tobe Hooper and Spielberg himself. But sadly, the show ended in 1987, after just two seasons.
At SXSW Hannibal creator Bryan Fuller revealed that he is currently writing scripts for the show’s revival. He will be joined in the writers’ room by Emily Gordon, Patton Oswalt, Kumail Nanjiani, and Jane Goldman, Crave reports.
We are working on a variety of scripts from a variety of sources, and we’ve got a lot of really great writers involved.” Fuller told Crave. “So it feels like I’m curating the Amazing Stories magazine. Yeah, so that’s very exciting because I get to collaborate with other writers and just let them do their thing under that umbrella, which is a relief.”
Fuller is currently serving as executive producer for the upcoming series Star Trek: Discovery, starring The Walking Dead’s Sonequa Martin-Green.
