The anthology series is created and executive produced by Guillermo del Toro; executive produced by Academy Award winner J. Miles Dale (The Shape of Water; Sex/Life), who also serves as co-showrunner; and executive produced by Gary Ungar.
Regina Corrado serves as co-executive producer. Del Toro also serves as host.
“With CABINET OF CURIOSITIES, we set out to showcase the realities existing outside of our normal world: the anomalies and curiosities,” Del Toro said in a statement when the premiere”We hand-picked and curated a group of stories and storytellers to deliver these tales, whether they come from outer space, supernatural lore, or simply within our minds,” said del Toro in a statement when the premiere date was announced.
“Just in time for Halloween, each of these eight tales is a fantastical peek inside the cabinet of delights existing underneath the reality we live in.”
The cast includes Crispin Glover (American Gods), F. Murray Abraham (Mythic Quest), Andrew Lincoln (The Walking Dead), Kate Micucci (Mom), and Glynn Turman (The Wire), and many more.
