Before the first season wraps up early next year, Deadline reports that CBS All Access has renewed writer/producer Kevin Williamson‘s series “Tell Me a Story,“ which takes the world’s most beloved fairy tales and re-imagines them as a dark and twisted psychological thriller.
The site notes, “Set in modern day New York City, the first season of the serialized drama interweaves “The Three Little Pigs,” “Little Red Riding Hood,” and “Hansel and Gretel” into an epic and subversive tale of love, loss, greed, revenge and murder. It is unclear which of the actors will return for the second installment of the anthology series.”
“The first season of Tell Me A Story turned conventional fairy tales on their heads, interweaving and modernizing three classic stories into a compelling thriller for today’s audiences, in a way only Kevin Williamson can,” said Julie McNamara, Executive VP, Original Content, CBS All Access. “We can’t wait to surprise and entertain viewers with a whole new set of tales next season.”
