TNT's Kevin Reilly Talks Tales From the Crypt Reboot
Kevin Reilly, the TNT and TBS President, recently spoke about the upcoming M. Night Shyamalan "Tales From the Crypt" reincarnation that's coming to to TNT.
"I think it may even be longer than an hour. There's going to be a half-hour anthology and then a one-hour original show with some shorts in between. So it's part of a whole block. The original half-hour, sort of slightly comedic, kind of twisted [story] that Night himself is going to direct will be a part of it every week. Then we're going to have rotating original one-hours. Then we've got shorts that'll be part of it too", said Reilly. "The anthology will be part of it every week and then there'll be rotating different serialized original hours".
He also said that they hope to use fan driven content, as well. "Some of those shorts are going to be crowdsourced ultimately. I don't even think we've announced this yet but we are working with Wattpad and ultimately I'd like some material to come from [from viewers]. We have some Guild issues we need to work out on this, but I'd like fan fiction to essentially make its way to our air."
And of course, who could forget about the icon of the show, the Crypt Keeper? Well, they plan on bringing him back also, but first they need to clear up the legalities behind that. Most likely, they will need to make a new one, that will be different enough not to cause any issues.
Look for the "Tales From the Crypt" reboot late in 2017.
