How ‘Two Sentence Horror Stories’ Showcases Diversity With an All-Female, Mostly Nonwhite Writers Room (Exclusive Video)

Vera Miao knew that when she pitched Stage 13 on the idea for what she told then would be “sort of ‘The Twlight Zone’ updated for the current day.” The result was “Two Sentence Horror Stories,” a collection of creepy 20-minute tales that puts a different spin on Serling’s creation over three seasons that aired on The CW and are available on Netflix.

“On one hand, I wanted it to be familiar,” Miao told awards editor Steve Pond during TheWrap’s Emmy Screening Series presentation of “Two Sentence Horror Stories.” “And if it ever came within a tiny fraction of proximity to the outer rim of ‘The Twilight Zone,’ I’d be ecstatic.”
