TV and film auteur Kevin Williamson turns fairy tales into modern nightmares in these retellings woven together for CBS All Access.

​“Sometimes one tiny thread pulled in the universe triggers a cosmic hell of human suffering,” says one character in the above trailer, created by agency Open Road.

Set in New York City, season one threads together “The Three Little Pigs,” “Little Red Riding Hood” and “Hansel and Gretel” into a tale of love, loss, greed, revenge and murder. The cast includes Billy Magnussen, Kim Cattrall, Danielle Campbell, Paul Wesley, James Wolk and Dania Ramirez.

Tell Me A Story premieres on CBS All Access on Oct. 31.
