Amazing Stories - Bryan Fuller Exits Apple TV Anthology Series

Share on Reddit

Apple hasn't yet launched a scripted series but it has parted ways with its first showrunner.

Bryan Fuller, who was poised to helm Apple's Amazing Stories anthology, has exited the project citing creative differences. The split is said to be amicable. Fuller, who originally developed Amazing Stories for NBC before it moved to Apple with a series pickup, is said to have wanted to do a Black Mirror-type show, which sources say was not something the iPhone maker had in mind.

Fuller was first attached to Amazing Stories in October 2015, when the individual episodic anthology was set up at NBC. (The series originally ran for two seasons in the '80s on the broadcast network when it explored strange, fantastic and supernatural stories.) Fuller was set to pen the original script for Universal Television — who produced the original series — and Amblin Television's Justin Falvey and Darryl Frank. Steven Spielberg, who created the original series, was not involved at the time.

The drama moved to Apple last year, with Spielberg boarding the 10-episode project in a content deal with the deep-pocketed tech giant. Fuller was set to serve as showrunner and exec produce alongside Spielberg, Frank, Falvey and Hart Hanson (Bones). Hanson will now take on a larger role on the show that is poised to take viewers through "worlds of wonder through the lens of today's most imaginative filmmakers, directors and writers."
