He will also hand pick a team of the genre writers and filmmakers to bring his selection of stories to life. There is no set episode count or premiere date at this time. “The Shape of Water” producer J. Miles Dale will also serve as executive producer, along with Gary Ungar of Exile Entertainment.

Del Toro’s film “The Shape of Water” recently earned four Academy Awards, including Best Picture, Best Director, Best Original Score and Best Production Design.
