'Star Trek' writers Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci will executive produce the remake project based on the 1980s anthology series.
The CW is retelling "Tales From the Darkside". The network is developing a new series based on George A. Romero's horror classic which ran from 1984 until 1988 with Stephen King's novelist son Joe Hill on board as a scribe.
The planned half-hour series is billed as a "reinvention of the horror/fantasy/thriller anthology series." "Star Trek" scribes Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci, who are currently executive producing FOX's "Sleepy Hollow", are set to serve as executive producers on the new series along with Heather Kadin and Jerry Golod.
Each episode of the original show featured individual short story that ended with a twist. Should The CW choose to move forward with the new series, it will likely premiere in summer 2014.
