Apple signs on ‘Once Upon a Time’ creators Horowitz and Kitsis as ‘Amazing Stories’ showrunners

Apple has signed on Adam Horowitz and Edward Kitsis as executive producers and showrunners for its upcoming reboot of “Amazing Stories,” Variety reports. The two co-creators of “Once Upon a Time” come on board to replace Bryan Fuller and Hart Hanson, who left the team in February citing “creative differences” that many believe resulted from Fuller’s desire to create a more edgy version of the show than Apple was looking for.
Notably, “Once Upon a Time” just aired its series finale on ABC, presumably freeing up the duo for other projects, however they have also signed a four-year extension of their contract at ABC Studios, so it’s unclear what other projects ABC may have in store for them. Prior to spinning up “Once Upon a Time” in 2011, Horowitz and Kitsis were on the writing staff of “Lost” and later also wrote the feature film “Tron: Legacy” and created the animated television series “Tron: Uprising” for Disney XD.
