The reboot of Steven Spielberg’s 1980s anthology series Amazing Stories is going ahead, as part of Apple’s push into streaming TV.
Apple has signed a content deal with the prolific producer, with the series expected to include 10 episodes.
The new series, which originally ran 1985 to 1987, written by Bryan Fuller, was originally set up at NBC two years ago.
“It’s wonderful to be reunited with our colleagues Zack [Van Amburg] and Jamie [Erlicht] in their new capacity at Apple,” said NBC Entertainment President Jennifer Salke in a statement, adding: “We love being at the forefront of Apple’s investment in scripted programming, and can’t think of a better property than Spielberg’s beloved Amazing Stories franchise with the genius of Bryan Fuller at the helm and more exciting creative partnerships to come.”
