Plot Synopsis

TELL ME A STORY is an anthology series that combines and re-imagines beloved fairy tales as dark and twisted psychological thrillers. Set in modern-day New York City, the first season 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. Troubled teen Kayla and her dad, Tim, try to make a fresh start at grandmother Colleen's home. Estranged siblings Gabe and Hannah are reunited under extreme circumstances. Jordan and his girlfriend Beth can't see eye-to-eye on their future together. CBS All Access released the series opener, "Hope," at 3:01am ET/12:01am PT on Halloween 2018 (October 31). Subsequent episodes are released Thursdays, beginning November 8.
On Thursday, January 3, 2019 at 3:01am ET/12:01am PT, CBS All Access released "Chapter 10: Forgiveness," the season finale of TELL ME A STORY. Hannah takes the fight to Katrina, culminating in a final showdown as she tries to free Gabe. Afraid of what an unhinged Josh is capable of, Kayla breaks off from Tim and the police to try and save Colleen. Jordan reaches his breaking point with the third pig. Two weeks earlier -- on Monday, December 17, 2018 -- CBS All Access renewed TELL ME A STORY for a second season.
