Paul Wesley Joins TELL ME A STORY On CBS All Access


Psychological thriller Tell Me A Story has cast Paul Wesley (The Vampire Diaries).

The new series is being made for CBS All Access and is being written by Kevin Williamson who worked with Wesley on Vampire Diaries which he co-created.

Tell Me a Story takes the world’s most beloved fairy tales and reimagines them as a dark and twisted psychological thriller. Set in modern day New York City, the first season of this serialized drama interweaves “The Three Little Pigs,” “Little Red Riding Hood,” and “Hansel and Gretel” into an epic and subversive tale of love, loss, greed, revenge and murder.

Wesley plays Eddie, a derelict and troubled individual whose petulance is fueled even more by his problems with drugs and alcohol. Although he works as a bartender, he also splits his time as a low-level drug dealer and part-time thief with his older brother Mitch, who never fails to treat Eddie as the lowly delinquent that he is.

Danielle Campbell, Billy Magnussen and Kim Catrall will also star.
