Let us tell you the story of tell me a story
Paul Wesley is a beloved alumni of CW. He is most commonly known for his role in The Vampire Diaries as Stephan Salvatore. Since TVD ended, stars have ventured into new projects and shows. So, just as everyone else, so has Stephan Salvatore. Paul Wesley traded fangs and the Salvatore Boarding House for a straw hut and robberies in the fairytale-inspired CBS All Access show. IMDb rates ‘Tell Me A Story’ 7.2/10. Paul Wesley personally advertises every episode on his Instagram. Since the show has a good following, let us tell you the story of ‘Tell Me A Story’.
The show is amidst its second season. Kevin Williamson is the creator of this CBS show. Kevin has previously created some dark and thrilling shows like ‘Stalker’ and ‘The Following’.
‘Tell Me A Story’ twists some popular fairy tales
Season one of the show is based on three fairy tales. Unlike the common damsel in distress such as fairy tales, the first season bases itself on totally common and cliche fairy tale:
The Three Little Pigs, Hansel and Gretel and Little Red Riding hood.
But there’s a twist!
The role of Paul Wesley is as the not so chubby and little pig, Eddie. He forms a gang with Sam (Dorian Missick) and Mitch (Michael Raymond-James) in order to renovate his house made of straw. Well, if that isn’t enough to justify why we’d assume that they represent the three little pigs, there’s more. So, one would think how some good guys gone bad can be compared to a beloved childhood story. Here’s the thing: They are three in number and they wear piggy face masks.
For the Hansel and Gretel part, Williamson and his writers depict New York City as the Woods. Dania Ramirez and Davi Santo play the role of Hanna and Gabe. Hanna is a cop who has to ‘rescue’ her brother from the ‘candy house’ depicted by drugs.
What ties these stories together is the third story. Danielle Campbell also worked on CW in Paul Wesley’s Vampire Diaries’ spin-off The Originals. She’s the Little Red Riding Hood who goes by the name Kayla. In a night of rebellion, she sleeps with a charming man. From there, her life gets entwined with that of Eddie and then Hannah.
Season 2 is a whole different story!
CBS All Access renewed the show for a second season. And while the season 2 also features Paul Wesley and Danielle Campbell, it is in a different setting. The story’s main plot follows the rather more common fairy tales. This story is based on Sleeping Beauty, Cinderella, and Beauty and the Beast. It is currently running on CBS All Access.
