It looks like someone at The CW is a fan of Tales from the Darkside. The network is said to be looking at doing a new version of the 1980s horror anthology series.
Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci will execcutive produce the project with Mitch Galin, Heather Kadin and Jerry Golod. Stephen King’s son, Joe Hill, is the writer.
The CW execs are considering the new Tales from the Darkside for a Summer 2014 run. It would be a half-hour program, just like the original which ran in syndication from 1984 until 1988.
What do you think? Do you think a horror anthology could work today? On the CW?
