CBS today announced a series order for a new psychological thriller to run on the CBS All Access streaming service.
“Tell Me a Story” will be produced by Aaron Kaplan’s Kapital Entertainment.
Kevin Williamson will serve as executive producer and writer, and Aaron Kaplan and Dana Honor will serve as executive producers for the series.
“‘Tell Me a Story’ takes the world’s most beloved fairy tales and reimagines them as a dark and twisted psychological thriller,” CBS said in today’s announcement. “Set in modern-day New York City, the first season of this serialized drama interweaves ‘The Three Little Pigs,’ ‘Little Red Riding Hood’ and ‘Jack and the Beanstalk’ into an epic and subversive tale of love, loss, greed, revenge and murder.”
The series is based on a format created by Marcos Osorio Vidal in collaboration with Gustavo Malajovich and Hernan Goldfrid. The series was produced by Gonzalo Cilley and Andres Tovar of Resonant and originally aired on the Spanish television network Antena tres.
