Created by Steven Spielberg, “Amazing Stories” premiered on NBC in September ’85, and it featured horror, sci-fi and fantasy tales directed by legends like Bob Clark, Joe Dante, Martin Scorsese, Tom Holland, Tobe Hooper, and even Spielberg himself.
Apple is rebooting “Amazing Stories” for modern audiences, and The Wrap reports tonight that Edward Burns has come on board to star in and executive produce an episode of the show. Mark Mylod (“Game of Thrones”) will direct the episode, with Austin Stowell (“Bridge of Spies,” “Whiplash”) and Kerry Bishé (“Halt and Catch Fire,” “Scrubs”) also starring.
Burns will play Bill Kaminski in the episode, a government agent.
“Once Upon a Time” creators Edward Kitsis and Adam Horowitz will serve as exec producers and showrunners for Apple’s new “Amazing Stories.”
The series, from Universal TV and Amblin Television, will transport us to worlds of wonder through the lens of today’s most imaginative filmmakers, directors and writers.
“Amazing Stories” is executive produced by Steven Spielberg, Darryl Frank, Justin Falvey, Edward Kitsis and Adam Horowitz.
