The Hollywood Reporter:
Bryan Fuller, who was poised to helm Apple's Amazing Stories anthology, has exited the project citing creative differences. The split is said to be amicable. Fuller, who originally developed Amazing Stories for NBC before it moved to Apple with a series pickup, is said to have wanted to do a Black Mirror-type show, which sources say was not something the iPhone maker had in mind.
The news may give some insight into Apple's vision for original programming. Apple is gearing its original programming for family-friendly content rather than realistically gritty stories that are popular on cable. Apple probably wants to avoid any controversies that may hurt its overall brand.
