Fairy tales get a gritty reboot in trailer for Tell Me a Story

Tell Me a Story

The upcoming CBS All Access series Tell Me a Story has had my attention ever since we first heard that it was going to tell twisted, modern variations on classic fairy tale scenarios and that SCREAM screenwriter Kevin Williamson was the person in charge of crafting these dark fairy tales. Now a trailer has arrived online to give a glimpse of what Williamson and his team came up with - and Tell Me a Story is looking very promising to me.

Set in New York City and based on the fairy tales Red Riding Hood, The Three Little Pigs, and Hansel and Gretel, the first season of Tell Me a Story will consist of ten episodes. Those familiar stories have been woven together to tell

an epic and subversive tale of love, loss, greed, revenge and murder.

Paul Wesley, Danielle Campbell, Kim Cattrall, Billy Magnussen, Dorian Missick, Zabryna Guevara, James Wolk, Davi Santos, Michael Raymond-James, Sam Jaeger, and Dania Ramirez star.

Williamson has said that Tell Me a Story reminds him of his "early days", back when he was writing films like SCREAM, SCREAM 2, and I KNOW WHAT YOU DID LAST SUMMER. That's exactly what I was hoping to hear.

Ramirez promised that we'll be seeing characters "have sex and murder people pretty gruesomely" when the series makes its premiere on CBS All Access on the night of Halloween, October 31st.
