M. Night Shyamalan Rebooting Tales From The Crypt For TNT



M. Night Shyamalan is bringing back the popular '90s horror anthology series Tales From The Crypt to TNT as part of a new two-hour horror themed block of programming.

Shyamalan is on board as executive producer, with the block launching this Fall; additional announcements for further series added to the block will be made in the coming months. Both short and long form content will be featured.

"This is a new genre for us in our series efforts and a great chance to partner with M. Night Shyamalan, whose blockbuster hit The Visit reminded movie audiences and critics this past summer that he truly is a master of horror," said Sarah Aubrey, executive vice president of original programming for TNT. "This two-hour horror block demonstrates not only TNT's commitment to working with today's top talents, but also our strategy to stand out in today's marketplace by challenging the conventional rules of programming and scheduling.”

Tales from the Crypt was originally a comic book, and the TV series ran on HBO from 1989 to 1996.

M. Night Shyamalan is also behind the popular Wayard Pines TV series and saw success with The Visit back in September on the big screen (good flick).
