Tell Me a Story

The plan is for The CW (WPCW-TV in Pittsburgh) to run season one and then follow it up with season two (if there are no interruptions, season two should begin Oct. 6th).

Executive produced by Kevin Williamson (“Scream”) “Tell Me a Story” reimagines fairy tales as dark thrillers with season one interweaving “The Three Little Pigs,” “Little Red Riding Hood” and “Hansel and Gretel.” Actors starring in season one include James Wolk, Billy Magnussen, Dania Ramirez, Paul Wesley and Kim Cattrall.

Season two is inspired by the stories of “Beauty and the Beast,” “Sleeping Beauty” and “Cinderella” and features a whole new set of characters with some actors, including Paul Wesley (“The Vampire Diaries”), returning in new roles.
