The maker of the iPhone and iPad aims to release a remake of Steven Spielberg's science-fiction anthology series Amazing Stories (1985 to 1987), according to NBCUniversal, one of the TV companies working with the technology giant. To develop the 10-episode series, Apple has partnered with Spielberg's Amblin Television and NBC Universal. The drama ran for two series on the United States network NBC in the mid-1980s, with minimal ratings success, but will now be revived for the on-demand era.
Each episode will sport a sumly $5 million dollar budget, suggesting the eps will be as epic as most of those in the original run.
Bryan Fuller of "Hannibal" will serve as the showrunner.
Spielberg originally created the series for NBC in the United States and the revival will be produced for Apple by Amblin alongside NBCUniversal-owned Universal TV.
When it ran on NBC, Amazing Stories was nominated for 12 Emmy's and went on to win five during its two-season run.
Four months ago Apple hired former presidents of Sony Pictures television Zack Van Amburg and Jamie Erlicht who were charged with the responsibility of overseeing original series production.
Apple is set to invest almost $1 billion in acquiring and producing original TV shows over the next year.
The show will be Apple's first venture into original content. There was also a reality show known as "Planet of the Apps" which was tech-themed.
It is still unclear how Apple will release its shows - or when.
