Steven Spielberg's Amazing Stories Will Be Rebooted

Steven Spielberg's Amazing Stories Will Be Rebooted

According to reports, the reboot will bring 10 episodes of "Amazing Stories" to Apple's platform, according to The Wall Street Journal. Though Apple's wallet is considerably thicker, the company is only looking to spend in the neighborhood of $1 billion in its first year.

The biggest twist about the upcoming reboot of Steven Spielberg's Amazing Stories might be where it landed.

"We love being at the forefront of Apple's investment in scripted programming, and can't think of a better property than Spielberg's beloved Amazing Stories franchise", said NBC Entertainment president Jennifer Salke. But the Journal quotes an executive as saying each episode of the new Amazing Stories will have a budget of more than $5 million dollars. A new deal reported by The Wall Street Journal could be the potential kick in the trousers its needs, bringing content from Mr. Movie Magic, Steven Spielberg to the platform. The show only ran for two seasons on NBC before being canceled.

It's maybe an odd choice - a not-widely-remembered '80s TV show - but "odd" is also the way you might describe Apple's foray into original content to begin with. In June, the tech company hired executives Jamie Erlicht and Zack Van Amburg from Sony to fill newly created positions that oversee "all aspects of video programming". Will it be apart of some new service they are launching or will it join Apple Music as the other Apple original shows have been so far. Its Carpool Karaoke spin-off series debuted this fall, and Cupertino unveiled an app development competition series (called Planet of the Apps) at WWDC this summer.
