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.‚ÄĚ
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).
