Bryan Fuller Drops Out of Steven Spielberg's AMAZING STORIES Reboot
I was excited to learn that Bryan Fuller would be developing Steven Spielberg's reboot of his classic anthology series Amazing Stories. He has a solid track record of developing great shows and he was set to serve as the showrunner on this one for Apple.
Unfortunately, he has decided to drop out of the series. According to Variety, the parting was amicable. "Fuller’s vision for the show did not mesh with the more family-friendly approach sought by Apple and Amblin Television."
It's no surprise that Amblin would want to keep the series family-friendly. The original series was very much like that. However, it would have been interesting to see what exactly Fuller would've wanted to do.
This is the third show that Fuller has dropped out of in the past few years. He previously left American Gods and Star Trek: Discovery. He is now completely focused on the series adaptation of Anne Rice's The Vampire Chronicles, which is another show that I'm looking forward to.
Fuller is being replaced on Amazing Stories by Bones alum Hart Hanson, who has been working alongside Fuller on the series for awhile.
Apple ordered a 10-episode first season but we don't know when it will premiere yet. I just hope that the series will tell new stories and not remake the same stories that were told during the original series run. What would you say your favorite episode from the original series is?
