(CBR) Jason Blum will bring his particular vision for horror to the small screen, Deadline reports.

NBC gave Blum, producer Tony Krantz (“Dracula”) and Endemol Productions a script-to-series commitment for an anthology series. That means, once the scripts are approved, they”re good to go for a 10-episode first season.

The currently untitled show will be an anthology in the vein of classics like “The Twilight Zone” and “The Outer Limits” in which each episode is a self-contained horror, sci-fi or thriller story. Blum, Krantz and company will also continue the former”s penchant for making microbudget scares.

Chad Villella, Matthew Bettinelli-Olpin, Tyler Gillett and Justin Martinez, also known as Radio Silence Productions, are on board as writers.
