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.
