Bryan Fuller Exits 'Amazing Stories' Reboot at Apple

Bryan Fuller, American TV writer and producer who has worked on Dead Like Me, Wonderfalls, Hannibal, and more, is thought to have had a different vision for the adaptation of Amazing Stories. The pair were said to have left that show over differences with producer Fremantle Media over the show's budget and creative direction. Fuller would have served as showrunner and executive produce the series along with Steven Spielberg, Hart Hanson, Justin Falvey, and Darryl Frank.

Fuller's departure is said to be an amicable one with the cause being Fuller's desire to make Amazing Stories more in the vein of Black Mirror while Apple wanted more family-friendly stories for the reboot.

The original version of the science fiction and horror series created by Steven Spielberg originally ran from 1985 to 1987 on NBC. He will no longer be the showrunner and it's unknown if he'll take on a new role.

Announcing the verdict in Mashal Khan Lynching case, the Anti-Terrorism Court (ATC) in Haripur sentenced accused Imran to death. Pakistan's then prime minister Nawaz Sharif held off on commenting on Mr Khan's death until he had been cleared of blasphemy.

THR broke the news last night that the always-in-demand Hannibal mastermind had ditched/been fired from (we're not entirely sure at this point, although the situation is now said to be "amicable") another big TV series in the works - this time, the Amazing Stories reboot he'd been working on with Steven Spielberg since 2015.

The drama moved to Apple a year ago, with Spielberg boarding the 10-episode project in a content deal with the deep-pocketed tech giant.

Fuller was first attached to Amazing Stories in October 2015, when the individual episodic anthology was set up at NBC. It was cancelled after a two-season order due to low ratings. The roster of shows it is making includes a morning show drama starring Jennifer Aniston and Reese Witherspoon, a space drama from Ron Moore (known for being the creator of "Battlestar Galactica"), a futuristic drama by renowned screenwriter Stephen DeKnight and a comedy starring "SNL" alum Kristen Wiig. Fuller recently signed on to help develop Anne Rice's The Vampire Chronicles for television.
