Modern ‘Tales From the Crypt’ Series in the Works

Those of you who read Bloody Disgusting regularly know that the site wouldn’t exist if it weren’t for HBO’s “Tales From the Crypt,” the EC comics adaptation that ran from 1989-1996.

Fifteen years after horror anthology “Tales from the Crypt” ended its 7-year-run on HBO, a new TV series based on the popular and controversial 1950s EC Comics anthology books is in the works with Gil Adler, producer on the HBO Crypt series, and Andrew Cosby co-creator of Syfy hit Eureka and co-founder of comic book publisher BOOM! Studios, reports Deadline.

The new hourlong series will neither be anthological nor related to the HBO show. “It will be an ongoing series that uses characters from the comic books in a more modern context,” Cosby said. “It’s all about continually elevating the genre, for both existing fans of the source material and mainstream audiences.

A detailed pitch and a bible for the new Crypt series have been completed, with producers expected to take the project out shortly. It will be pitched to broadcast networks as part of the current development cycle as well as to cable outlets.

All I know is that the Cryptkeeper BETTER return! Have your say below.
