A new anthology horror series based on the work of R.L. Stine is coming to Disney+...
Via Deadline, Disney+ has given an eight-episode series order to Just Beyond, a horror/comedy anthology from writer Seth Grahame-Smith (Pride and Prejudice and Zombies) and 20th Century Fox Television, based on the bestselling BOOM! Studios graphic novel series from Goosebumps author R.L. Stine!
Said Grahame-Smith to the site, “I grew up watching 'Twilight Zone' reruns and the original 'Amazing Stories' with my parents...I’ve always wanted to make a genre anthology series that families could enjoy together, and do it in a way that delivered for kids and adults alike. R.L. Stine has been a part of millions of childhoods, and Disney+ has already proven itself as a place that knows how to make high-quality shows for the whole family. I couldn’t be more excited to be working with both of them.”
Grahame-Smith will serve as writer and executive producer alongside David Katzenberg through their KatzSmith Productions banner, Stephen Christy and Ross Richie. R.L. Stine is attached as co-executive producer.
The series is expected to Disney+ in the Fall of 2021.
