Show: "Fear Itself," NBC, June 5
Premise: Spinning out of two seasons of "Masters of Horror" on Showtime, creator* Mick Garris assembles an all-star lineup of horror directors (including John Landis, Darren Bousman and Ronny Yu) for a spooky -- yet prime-time network friendly -- anthology of tales.
Why you should watch: The anthology series has had a rocky road on TV. Last summer's "Masters of Sci-Fi" died a lonely death on ABC. In the interest of TV diversity, here's hoping people give this a chance.
* Mick Garris was originally listed as "Fear Itself's" producer, but he is credited by NBC as its creator.
