The Hollywood Reporter brings news that Syfy will continue to put its own unique twists and turns on classic fairy tales following the premiere of 'Beauty and the Beast' later this month.

The network will air five titles based on familiar stories, including 'Hansel and Gretel' and 'Little Red Riding Hood.' The films will be part of the network's popular Saturday night movie franchise, which features low-budget, original genre projects produced in association with several independent studios.

The series of fairy tale adaptations comes as part of Syfy's recent attempt to appeal to a broader audience, which began when it changed its branding last year from Sci Fi Channel to Syfy.

Syfy's 'Hansel' will feature a grown-up Hansel returning to the haunted forest to seek revenge against the witch, and 'Little Red' finds a descendant of the original girl in the woods discovering that her family secretly hunts werewolves.

The network's fairy tales begin on February 27 with 'Beauty and the Beast,' starring Estella Warren and Rhett Giles.
