Tales From The Darkside Cordon Dead People Television

The CW just picked up a bunch of scifi and supernatural series as they announced their brand new pilot orders. This includes a Tales From The Darkside reboot, a plague series and another show about a cab driver who can see dead people.

Once again proving that The CW loves genre, Deadline is reporting that Tales from the Darkside will be back, thanks to Alex Kurtzman, Bob Orci and Joe Hill. Allegedly the reboot is planned to air as a one-hour drama. The original anthology series was first penned by George A. Romero, which Hill has now tackled.

The next new series comes from Julie Plec (showrunner for The Vampire Diaries and The Originals) and director David Nutter; it's called Cordon and channels a lot of the same quarantine issues as Under the Dome. The series is set in Atlanta when a violent plague causes a town to be isolated and quarantined immediately.

And then there's Dead People, which centers around a cab driver that has the ability to see dead people after a near-death experience, which includes his ex-wife that he still carries a torch for. Dead People is from Californication creator Tom Kapinos and J.J. Abrams' Bad Robot.

Love that The CW is basically the home to experimental genre TV! Never change, you beautiful, crazy diamond. We'll keep you updated about each pilot order as more news breaks. - Download Hi-Res Songs
