Bryan Fuller reviving Spielberg's Amazing Stories as Apple series

Apple to reboot Steven Spielberg's Amazing Stories

Now we're getting a peek at what that might mean: The Wall Street Journalreports the company will soon be reviving Steven Spielberg's science-fiction and horror anthology series Amazing Stories.

The deal involves Apple, Spielberg's Amblin Television, and Comcast's (NASDAQ:CMCSA) NBC and pertains to NBC's show "Amazing Stories". In fact, they're so common that even a reboot of an oddball cult-classic barely turns heads (Twin Peaks shows that formula can succeed, right?).

We've reached out to Apple for comment on the report.

"It's wonderful to be reunited with our colleagues Zack [Van Amburg] and Jamie [Erlicht] in their new capacity at Apple", Jennifer Salke, President, NBC Entertainment, told THR.

Blade Runner 2049 disappoints at U.S. box office
While the reviews for Blade Runner 2049 have been good, the same can't be said for its box office . The animated My Little Pony trotted in with a modest US$8.8 million, slightly above forecasts.


Apple has been looking to create its own original video content, diving deeper into a field crowded by Hollywood studios and online streaming service providers such as Netflix Inc and Amazon.com Inc's Prime Video.

The run will reportedly last for 10 episodes, each with a production budget of $5 million.

Apple's scripted strategy is becoming clearer by the day. But selling media services has taken on a new urgency at the company as sales of iPhones have slowed.

Between Carpool Karaoke and Planet of the Apps, Apple's original content offerings have been...shaky at best. Initially set up at NBC in 2015, the reboot comes from writer Bryan Fuller (American Gods), who is executive-producing along with Darryl Frank and Justin Falvey from Spielberg's Amblin TV. Details on when Amazing Stories would come to fruition or how it would be released were not available.
