Netflix, del Toro to Collaborate on Horror Anthology Series ’10 After Midnight’

With Netflix leading the charge, the online streaming services continue to conquer the new entertainment landscape.  According to the folks over at Deadline, Guillermo del Toro, already the creator of the Emmy-winning Netflix animated series DreamWorks Trollhunters, will venture into the live-action world with the network as well.  The network has given the green-light to Guillermo del Toro Presents 10 After Midnight, which represents their first stab at an original horror anthology series.

Guillermo del Toro Presents 10 After Midnight is described as series of del Toro’s original stories, which tows the line between the divine and the devilish.  The show follows a long lineage of similarly-themed projects, which include Ray Bradbury Theatre and The Outer Limits among others.  Del Toro is slated to both write and direct certain episodes, but his hand-prints will be on the entire show.  He will personally select the writers and directors that will work on each episode, which bodes well for many up-and-coming horror collaborators.

Netflix is ecstatic to work with the award-winning director, who is coming off a project (The Shape of Water) which won four Oscars at this year’s Academy Awards (including del Toro for Best Director.)  Known for very dark and emotional horror and fantasy fare such as his brilliant films The Devil’s Backbone and Pan’s Labyrinth, the Mexican-native has delved into more mainstream but action-packed fare lately such Pacific Rim and the Hellboy franchise.  This new series represents a more natural progression between the director and Netflix, who are already working together on the critically-acclaimed DreamWorks Trollhunters, which is ready to unveil its third and final season on May 25th.

While no additional details have been provided regarding the show, Guillermo del Toro Presents 10 After Midnight is expected to begin production in the very near future.
