CBS Orders ‘Scream’ Writer’s “Tell Me a Story”, a Twisted Spin On Fairy Tales

CBS All Access has ordered to series “Tell Me a Story”, described as a fantasy-psychological thriller from Scream writer and “Vampire Diaries” co-creator Keven Williamson.

The first season of the anthology series, which takes the world’s most beloved fairy tales and reimagines them as a dark and twisted psychological thriller, will interweave “The Three Little Pigs”, “Little Red Riding Hood”, and “Jack and the Beanstalk” into a subversive tale of love, loss, greed, revenge and murder.

It will be interested to see how these are interpreted on a series, especially with stories like “The Three Little Pigs”.

The news was first reported by Tracking Board. Watch for more info as it comes in.

    I have a short story horror story about red riding hood, I thought it was good but don’t how to follow up with it to make a movie. Curious on how twisted they can make these stories

      Oh the POTENTIAL is there X, the question is will they?

      • MrX13

        We will have to see!

  • Yay!

  • James Allard
  • Meisha’s Taint

    So another cop drama with a light fantasy twist?

  • Necro

    This is going to be one of those POTENTIAL things in Horror, which I admit includes almost anything that’s done, but sometimes you have something that comes along where they have to try to make it suck. This has Horror written all over it with the POTENTIAL to be great! C’mon twisted fairy tales, really?! This could be so good, take something sweet, innocent like and completely flip the script! Just like years ago as an example; ‘Red Riding Hood’ was a joke! Had the POTENTIAL but the particular vision for that one was a vision that sucked IMO! And not to mention PG-13. I hope the decision comes down to make this/these as twisted as possible!

    Most likely will be canceled. Aside from Vampire Diaries- Kevin’s shows just never performs well despite being unique and interesting.
