It’s been about a year and a half since we heard that Pushing Daisies and Hannibal executive producer Bryan Fuller was working on a revival of the anthology series Amazing Stories.

However, that might change if NBC finds success bringing a familiar anthology series of that kind back to the small screen.
Amazing Stories was an hour-long weekly sci-fi and fantasy anthology series created and executive produced by Steven Spielberg that told stories of the fantastic, strange and supernatural, and now Pushing Daisies and Hannibal creator and executive producer Bryan Fuller and Amblin TV will bring the show to NBC for a revival.
