New Tales From the Crypt Series Being Developed

It's been 15 years since HBO aired the anthology horror series Tales From the Crypt, based on the EC Comic of the same name, but the time seems right in this era of reboots and remakes for TFTC to make a comeback.

Reports Deadline, "A new TV series based on the popular and controversial 1950s EC Comics anthology books is in the works with Gil Adler, producer on the HBO Crypt series, and Andrew Cosby co-creator of Syfy hit Eureka and co-founder of comic book publisher BOOM! Studios. The new hourlong series will neither be anthological nor related to the HBO show. 'It will be an ongoing series that uses characters from the comic books in a more modern context,' Cosby said. 'It's all about continually elevating the genre, for both existing fans of the source material and mainstream audiences.'"

The series will be produced in cooperation with the estate of the late William M. Gaines, and the proposed project will be brought out for sale in the very near future. At this point an extremely detailed bible and "pitch" for the show has been completed.
