A new Twilight Zone is already in the works at CBS All Access with Jordan Peele in charge. But now, Rod Serling’s follow-up anthology series is also getting the reboot treatment. Deadline reports that Syfy is planning a modern take on Serling’s Night Gallery, which ran from 1969 to 1973 on NBC.

Unlike the sci-fi yarns depicted on The Twilight Zone, Night Gallery opted for stories rooted in horror and the macabre. Serling appeared in a dimly lit art gallery and introduced each episode’s segments with an unsettling painting. The episodes typically aired two or three segments apiece. Although it wasn’t quite as popular as Serling’s previous show, Night Gallery launched the imaginations of several prominent contemporary filmmakers. The series’ pilot episode famously marked the directorial debut of Steven Spielberg, who helmed a segment that featured one of Joan Crawford’s final onscreen performances. Additionally, Guillermo del Toro has said that watching “The Doll” segment from the show’s first season as a child made him “pee like a hose.”

Apart from original tales, Night Gallery also adapted the H.P. Lovecraft stories “Pickman’s Model” and “Cool Air.” Other writers who saw their work translated on the show include Richard Matheson, Basil Copper, and Penelope Wallace. The new series will be spearheaded by executive producers Jeff Davis and David Janollari. Davis created the long-running CBS series Criminal Minds as well as MTV’s Teen Wolf reboot. Janollari, on the other hand, has worked as a producer on dramas such as Midnight, Texas and Six Feet Under. Universal TV and Universal Cable Productions are co-producing the venture, which doesn’t yet have a release date.
