The Co-Creators of ONCE UPON A TIME Are Now The Showrunners of The AMAZING STORIES Reboot
The co-creators of ABC's hit Disney series Once Upon a Time, Adam Horowitz and Edward Kitsis, have officially signed on as executive producers and showrunners of Apple's upcoming reboot of Steven Spielberg's Amazing Stories.
I have high hopes for this Amazing Stories reboot. Judging by what these two guys did with Once Upon a Time, it seems like the series will be in good hands. The series was previously being developed by Brad Fuller, but he ended up dropping out because "Fuller’s vision for the show did not mesh with the more family-friendly approach sought by Apple and Amblin Television."
Horowitz and Kitsis got their start writing for shows like Popular and Felicity. They then joined the writing staff of Lost and ended up writing the feature film Tron: Legacy. They also developed the animated television series Tron: Uprising. Now that Once Upon a Time is done, they can focus all their attention on Amazing Stories.
We still don't know exactly what we can expect from the reboot of the series, but Apple has ordered a 10-episode first season. I just hope that the series will tell new stories and not remake the same stories that were told during the original series run in the 80s. What would you say your favorite episode from the original series is?
There's no word yet on when the series will premiere.
