Academy Award winner writer-producer-director Guillermo del Toro is reteaming with The Shape of Water producer J. Miles Dale and Netflix on a new horror anthology series, Guillermo del Toro Presents 10 After Midnight. The show, coming soon to the streamer, is a genre-defining anthology where Del Toro will present a collection of personally-curated stories that are both equally sophisticated and horrific.
On Guillermo del Toro Presents 10 After Midnight, creator and executive producer del Toro will bring his own visionary style as both a writer and director to certain episodes. In addition, he will handpick a team of the genre’s best writers and exciting new filmmakers to bring his selection of stories to life.
The series serves as Netflix’s first original horror anthology series and extends the collaboration between Del Toro and Netflix, which began with the award-winning animated series Trollhunters. Dale will serve as executive producer on the show, along with Gary Ungar (Exile Entertainment).
Guillermo del Toro is the writer and director of the Academy Award-winning film The Shape of Water, which earned four Academy Awards, including Best Picture, Best Director, Best Original Score and Best Production Design. Del Toro is the creator of the critically acclaimed and Emmy Award-winning DreamWorks Trollhunters on Netflix, which will return for a third season May 25.
His previous films alternate between Spanish-language dark fantasy pieces, such as The Devil’s Backbone, and Pan’s Labyrinth, winner of three Academy Awards, and American studio movies, such as the vampire superhero action film Blade II, the supernatural adventures Hellboy and Hellboy II: The Golden Army, and the science fiction monsters-versus-robots film Pacific Rim. Del Toro’s previous horror series credit includes The Strain, which aired for four seasons on FX and was based on the book by del Toro and Chuck Hogan.
