Bryan Fuller departs Amazing Stories reboot at Apple

Less than four months after it was announced he would showrun the new series, The Hollywood Reporter brings word that television creative Bryan Fuller has departed the in-development reboot of Amazing Stories at Apple. The outlet notes that Fuller wanted to take the new series in a Black Mirror-like direction, meaning more adult, while Apple wanted to keep the show as a family-friendly series.

This is not the first time that Fuller has departed with one of his television shows due to creative differences. He most recently departed the STARZ series American Gods. Previously, he departed the likes of Dead Like Me and Star Trek: Discovery. Fuller recently signed on to help develop Anne Rice’s The Vampire Chronicles for television.

The Amazing Stories reboot is still moving forward at Apple, however, with Bones creator Hart Hanson stepping up for a larger role in the series that “will transport the audience to worlds of wonder through the lens of today’s most imaginative filmmakers, directors and writers.”

10 episodes in total have been ordered for the new series with each entry said to have a $5 million budget.

Amazing Stories first premiered in September of 1985 and was created by filmmaker Steven Spielberg, fresh off the success from producing Back to the Future and directing Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom. The series’ episodes ranged from fantasy-themed to more sci-fi or horror-focused episodes and featured a veritable who’s who of directors behind each episode, including Spielberg himself, plus Bob Clark, Clint Eastwood, Joe Dante, Martin Scorsese, Irvin Kershner, Robert Zemeckis, Danny DeVito, Tom Holland, Brad Bird, Nick Castle, and even Burt Reynolds. The series, despite twelve Emmy nominations and five wins, was cancelled after two seasons.

UPDATE 4:04 p.m.: Hart Hanson, who partnered with Fuller on Amazing Stories has left the show as well, according to THR. Hanson created BonesThe Finder and Backstrom and has written for the TV series Joan of Arcadia and Judging Amy.
