Amazing Stories ran for two seasons from 1985 to 1987 on NBC, and despite winning 12 Emmys, it was eventually canceled due to low ratings.

"We love being at the forefront of Apple's investment in scripted programming, and can't think of a better property than Spielberg's beloved "Amazing Stories" franchise", Jennifer Salke, president of NBC Entertainment, said in a statement. As for Spielberg's role, sources say that he will likely serve as an executive producer, but nothing has been confirmed. The series however won a handful of Emmy awards and earned Spielberg a directing nomination for a World War II-themed episode called "The Mission".
