Netflix taps Stranger Things producer for Unsolved Mysteries reboot

Netflix taps Stranger Things producer for Unsolved Mysteries reboot

Each episode of the show covered a different real-life mystery, usually of a true crime variety and occasionally even a paranormal one.

The streaming service announced creators from the original show have teamed up with producers from the Netflix smash "Stranger Things" for the modern reboot.

First Round of Grammy Performers Announced
He's also up for Album Of The Year for Beerbongs & Bentleys and Best Pop Solo Performance for " Better Now ". The 61st annual Grammy Awards air February 10 on CBS from the Staples Center in Los Angeles at 8 p.m.


The original Unsolved Mysteries ran for 11 seasons and 260 episodes chronicling over 1,000 stories, and received six Emmy nominations.

Like the original, the revival will use actors to recreate the events surrounding its mysteries, and will also include interviews with family members, police officers, and others involved with each case. Robert Wise will also serve as showrunner and co-executive producer, while Shawn Levy and Josh Barry of Stranger Things produce through their 21 Laps banner. In keeping with tradition, each episode will focus on a single unsolved crime, unexplained disappearance, or paranormal occurrence. The reboot will reportedly be the result of Levy's 21 Laps Entertainment working alongside Netflix, which has rapidly expanded its catalog of original episodic shows. In a Reddit AMA in August 2017, Cosgrove said, "We are actively talking to a couple of broadcasters who have shown interest, and we're very optimistic that we'll have something by way of new episodes by the end of the year".
