The next Tales from the Crypt writer could be you

M. Night Shyamalan's upcoming series Tales from the Crypt will be igniting a horror block on TNT with its ten episode first season. As if that wasn't great enough for horror fans, you might actually have a chance to get in on the ground floor.

The story-sharing web site Wattpad has just launched an entity called Wattpad Studios, which is teaming with Turner and Tales from the Crypt to allow user-generated content to make its way onto actual episodes of the show. TNT eventually plans on expanding this process to other programming and their sister network TBS.

Said Justin Williams, senior vice president of digital ventures for TNT and TBS:

Our partnership with Wattpad is a perfect intersection of content and fan engagement, where fans actually have the chance to directly influence and, in some cases even have their material optioned and developed by our networks.

Per Wattpad's website: TNT and Wattpad will invite writers around the world to bring their story ideas forward through contests and other opportunities that will be announced on the official Turner profile on Wattpad and on social media.

This is pretty unprecedented access to television production, making the wall between creator and consumer more porous than ever. If you have a great idea, you can actually get it in front of the eyes of a studio right away. Who wouldn't want that?
