In March, we reported that Bryan Fuller and Steven Spielberg were developing a reboot of classic anthology series Amazing Stories, with a number of recognizable writers set to contribute to the series—including Patton Oswalt, Kumail Nanjiani, Emily Gordon, and Jane Goldman. Now it looks like some reshuffling has happened behind the scenes, as Variety is reporting that the Amazing Stories reboot has moved to Apple as part of a new “content deal” between Apple, Amblin, and NBC parent company Universal. The Variety story doesn’t say how this will impact the show on the creative side, but it doesn’t name any of the previously announced writers. That doesn’t necessarily mean that they are no longer involved, but perhaps this little shakeup has made stuff like that less certain.

The original Amazing Stories was co-created by Steven Spielberg and won five Emmy awards during its two-year run in the ‘80s.
