The new trailer for Kevin Williamson’s upcoming CBS All Access series, Tell Me a Story, was just released and it is definitely reminiscent of the stories that made him famous in the 1990’s. In Williamson’s own words (from the TCA Conference) “This reminds me a lot of my early days. It took me back to another place.”
The writer/director best known for Scream, I Know What You Did Last Summer, The Faculty, and Dawson’s Creek, appears to be venturing back into the slasher-thriller territory with his new series, which is supposedly based on classic fairy tales (and also based on an Argentinian anthology series). The focus on young, attractive twenty-somethings and mystery is readily apparent in the trailer (as well as a lot of sex and drug use, which I guess I missed the last time I read Little Red Riding Hood, Hansel and Gretel and The Three Little Pigs).
