When Kevin Williamson rolls-out a new, high-concept TV series, people take notice. You should know him as creator of Dawson’s Creek and the Scream movie and TV franchise. This new series adapts Mexican television series Érase una vez for English speaking audiences. The series premieres October 31, 2018 on CBS All-Access, the same pay service you need to watch Star Trek Discovery. The idea behind this new series centers on familiar fairy tales, like The Three Pigs, Little Red Riding Hood, and Hansel and Gretel. Sounds like Once Upon a Time, doesn’t it? Not so fast. Although the story arcs will base themselves on those familiar tales, Williamson re-imagined them in modern day New York City as interweaving, dark, psychological thrillers.
Don’t expect to find actual talking pigs in these stories. Shown in the video below, actors Paul Wesley and James Wolk describe what they can from their parts in the “Three Pigs” story. Fans of Paul Wesley’s work may find it interesting for the actor to admit he relished the idea of playing a role “against type”. Williamson and Wesley have teamed up to make the popular actor into a character you’ll love to hate. Other familiar faces you can expect to see include Kim Cattrall and Dania Ramirez.
Will You Subscribe and Watch?
Based on the intriguing concept and Williamson’s track record, will viewers make the leap to All-Access subscriptions for this new series? Already having a subscription for Star Trek, I’ll give it episode or two. I used to really like Dawson’s Creek, after all.
