Netflix Gives Series Order to Anthology Series '10 After Midnight' Created by Guillermo Del Toro

Netflix has today given a series order to the original anthology series 10 After Midnight created by Academy Award winner Guillermo Del Toro (The Shape of Water). An episode count and premiere date were not immediately announced.

Each installment of the episodic horror anthology will be personally curated by Del Toro, with stories described as equally sophisticated and horrific. Del Toro will bring his visionary style as a writer and director to certain episodes. He'll also hand-pick a team of the genre' best writers and new filmmakers to bring his selection of stories to life.

Del Toro will executive produce with J. Miles Dale and Gary Ungar. Exile Entertainment will produce in association with Netflix.

The new series will expand Del Toro's relationship with the streaming service. He co-created (alongside Marc Guggenheim) the animated series Trollhunters - which returns for its third and final season on May 25.
