From visionary executive producers Steven Spielberg and Edward Kitsis & Adam Horowitz, this reimagining of the classic anthology series transports everyday characters into worlds of wonder, possibility, and imagination.

MacDailyNews Take: We’ve been waiting for this since 2017 when we first learned that Apple had inked a deal for Amazing Stories!

Now, for those of us who remember, this is a somewhat curious choice because Spielberg’s “Amazing Stories” was not a ratings hit back in the 1980s – likely due to the audience’s sky high expectations. The series did receive 12 Emmy nominations and won five, but it was not renewed by NBC after its initial two-year contract.

Those of us here who watched it live on NBC back in 1985-87, remember the series and liked it.

We’ll see if 30 years, $5 million per episode, and no network television constraints can help make “Amazing Stories” really take off this time.MacDailyNews, October 10, 2017

  1. My favorite Amazing Stories was the shadow man who lives under the kid’s bed.

    Aaand I just looked it up and it was a Twilight Zone episode. Never mind.

    Amazing Stories was a fun series then, hopefully will be a fun series now. The primary danger will be if Spielberg holds the reins too tightly. He has to let artists who are inspired by his work make new things in his image, not make the same things again and again.

    Even M. Night Shyamalan seems to have gotten this message — “Servant” is in his wheelhouse without being too much him, which audiences have ODed on. The result is interesting and watchable.
