Bryan Fuller Drops Out of Steven Spielberg's Amazing Stories Reboot

I was excited to learn that Bryan Fuller would be developing Steven Spielberg's reboot of his classic anthology series Amazing Stories. He has a solid track record of developing great shows and he was set to serve as the showrunner on this one for Apple.

Unfortunately, he has decided to drop out of the series. According to Variety, the parting was amicable. "Fuller’s vision for the show did not mesh with the more family-friendly approach sought by Apple and Amblin Television."

It's no surprise that Amblin would want to keep the series family-friendly. The original series was very much like that. However, it would have been interesting to see what exactly Fuller would've wanted to do.

This is the third show that Fuller has dropped out of in the past few years. He previously left American Gods and Star Trek: Discovery. He is now completely focused on the

While they had yet to fully begin development on the series, The Hollywood Reporter has revealed Fuller has left the project over creative differences with Apple.

Bryan Fuller will no longer serve as showrunner on the upcoming Apple version of the anthology series “Amazing Stories,” Variety has confirmed.

A source close to Fuller says that the parting was amicable. Fuller’s vision for the show did not mesh with the more family-friendly approach sought by Apple and Amblin Television. “Bones” alum Hart Hanson has already been on board for some time to serve as day-to-day showrunner.

This marks the third show Fuller has departed in the past few years. Most recently, he and Michael Green exited the Starz series adaptation of “American Gods,” which Variety exclusively reported. The pair were said to have left that show over differences with producer Fremantle Media over the show’s budget and creative direction. Prior to that, Fuller was set as the showrunner on the CBS All Access series “Star Trek: Discovery” before stepping down in October 2016. It was announced in January that Fuller is now involved

Bones Boss on That X-Files Dig in Finale: 'There Was Some Concern'
The (very) subtle shade is out there.

In Tuesday’s Bones finale, Booth — at the tail end of a moving pep talk he was giving to a demoralized Brennan — attempted to cheer his wife up further by assuring her, “We’re way better than Mulder and Scully.” That was no mere throwaway line. The crack bookended a moment in the show’s pilot 12 years ago when Booth gave the iconic X-Files duo a similar — albeit more effusive — shout-out, telling Brennan, “We’re Scully and Mulder.”

‘Bones’ Series Finale Postmortem: Showrunner Michael Peterson on How This May Not Be the End (Spoilers)
Read no further if you haven’t seen the series finale (for now) of “Bones.” Spoilers ahead!

There are any number of ways to end a series. There’s the flat cut to black; the reveal that this has all been a dream. Most of them involve some level of controversy after the fact. But when it came time to end “Bones” after 12 seasons on Fox, showrunners Michael Peterson and Jonathan Collier wanted to send their characters riding off into the sunset fully intact. And so we ended not with a bang or a whimper, but with Booth and Brennan bantering into the black. Peterson called up Variety to discuss the very last episode of “Bones” — and why it may not be the very last episode of “Bones.”

Unlike some finales, we don’t get a special last line of dialogue — it’s more akin to the end of a regular episode. When
