While Jordan Peele and CBS are hard at work on bringing back “The Twilight Zone” for a whole new generation, Deadline reports today that another Rod Serling anthology series is getting the reboot treatment, with Syfy developing a new take on “Night Gallery”!
The reimagining of the classic series comes from Teen Wolf creator/executive producer Jeff Davis and Midnight, Texas executive producer David Janollari.
“The Night Gallery reboot will update the 1969 series for the digital age. Dark and twisted morality tales paired with Serling’s specific brand of irony, Night Gallery will explore and exploit every modern nightmare imaginable, mining our fears of the dangers of social media.”
“Night Gallery,” which ran on NBC from 1969 to 1973, was Serling’s supernatural/horror followup to his sci-fi-themed anthology series “The Twilight Zone.” Serling was the host of “Night Gallery,” appearing in an art gallery setting to introduce each segment of an episode by unveiling a painting that illustrated the story.
The project, picked up for development, will be co-produced by Universal TV, where David Janollari Entertainment is based, and Universal Cable Prods.
