Guillermo del Toro and Netflix team up on new horror series

Guillermo del Toro and Netflix team up on new horror series

The network's just announced Guillermo del Toro has created a new horror anthology series titled Guillermo del Toro Presents 10 After Midnight which will air exclusively on Netflix. Netflix describes the stories del Toro will select as "equally sophisticated and horrific". In this Netflix series, Del Toro is teaming up again with The Shape of Water producer J. Miles Dale, who will handle executive producer duties alongside Gary Ungar. The Academy Award-winning filmmaker will also have the third season of the animated kids program Trollhunters released on May 25. By the way, this isn't Del Toro's first foray into TV. Genre fans have enjoyed the Oscar-winning filmmaker's intelligent and stylistic approach to horror, like in Crimson Peak and The Devil's Backbone, and it should be interesting to see what he brings to this new Netflix series.

Guillermo del Toro earned four Academy Awards for his riveting romantic fantasy, The Shape of Water.

Guillermo del Toro is a name that many are familiar with as the director has been responsible for directing quite a few supernatural/fantasy style movies, such as Pan's Labyrinth, Hellboy, and more recently The Shape of Water. It's worth mentioning that del Toro (often through no fault of his own) has been associated with an impressively lengthy list of films, television series, and video games wthat never came to fruition.

This sounds like the ideal format for del Toro, who has always tried to use his name to help other burgeoning talents whether it was J.A. Bayona on The Orphanage or Andres Muschietti on Mama.
