Things We Saw Today: Tell Me a Story Turns Fairy Tales into Dark Thrillers

Plus William Shatner, the last Blockbuster and more!

CBS All Access continues to announce new shows for the streaming network. Today they premiered the trailer for their new series from Kevin Williamson (Scream, The Following). Tell Me a Story takes classic fairy tales and turns them into present day thrillers set in New York City. The series is set to subvert stories like The Three Little Pigs, Little Red Riding Hood, and Hansel and Gretel. The show stars many familiar faces, like Paul Wesley (The Vampire Diaries), Kim Catrall (Sex and the City) and James Wolk (Mad Men). The series premieres on Halloween. What do you think of the trailer?
