Apple is close to a deal on a reboot of Amazing Stories to air as one of their first original programming attempts. Deadline reports that the company is in talks with Amblin TV and Universal TV on the reboot of the anthology series.

The original series, which was produced by Steven Spielberg, aired from 1985 to 1987 and has become a cult classic. The reboot was originally set up at NBC (who aired the original series) with Bryan Fuller (Hannibal, American Gods) writing back in 2015.

“It’s wonderful to be reunited with our colleagues Zack and Jamie in their new capacity at Apple,” said Jennifer Salke, who oversees Universal TV. “We love being at the forefront of Apple’s investment in scripted programming, and can’t think of a better property than Spielberg’s beloved Amazing Stories franchise with the genius of Bryan Fuller at the helm and more exciting creative partnerships to come.”
