Kris Lemche has been cast as the lead in the Tales From the Darkside Reboot Pilot Episode. This is a full reboot of George A. Romero‘s horror anthology series Tales From the Darkside from the 1980’s. In CW’s Tales From the Darkside Season 1, things play out very different than the original horror anthology. There will be one main character who is present in every single episode named Newman (Lemche). Newman is described as “a weathered and tortured young man… the guide to the unsuspecting who come across The Darkside. Newman - a man with his own desperate, wrenching secrets - knows exactly what’s causing the terrifying Darkside Events that drive the series. What he doesn’t know is how to stop them.” Joe Hill (Horns (2014)) is writing and executive producing the new horror TV series. Other executive producers include Alex Kurtzman, Roberto Orci, Heather Kadin, Mitch Galin and Jerry Golod. Joe Hill is also Stephen King‘s son if that means anything in the form of even more expectations of greatness in the new TV series.
