The CW is on the heels of their successful rebooting of “Whose Line Is It Anyway” and are now planning to bring back the half-hour series, “Tales From the Darkside.” The network is planning to team up with writing and producing duo Alex Kurtzman and Bob Orci along with writer Joe Hill to remake the 1980’s horror/fantasy/thriller anthology series by George A. Romero.
Hill is set to write the project which is being reviewed for a summer time slot. Hill, Kurtzman and Orci will executive produce with Heather Kadin, Mitch Galin and Jerry Golod for CBS TV Studios, where Kurtzman and Orci’s K/O Paper Products is based.
“Tales From The Darkside” had a four-year syndicated run and is owned by CBS TV Studios sibling CBS TV Distribution.
The project reunites Kurtzman and Orci with Hill, son of horror master Stephen King. The three previously worked together on Locke & Key, a drama adaptation of Hill’s graphic novel, which went to pilot at Fox.
