Stephen King's The Mist began as one of several novellas in 1980's horror anthology, Dark Forces, and then was adapted into a 2007 feature film by Frank Darabont, and now it is headed to the small screen.
Today, Spike announced that The Mist television series, produced by Dimension Television, has received an order for 10 hourlong episodes.
It'll go into production this summer, make its debut in 2017, and Christian Torpe (Rita) is serving as the show's executive producer.
“From the brilliant mind of Stephen King and the incredible production team at TWC-Dimension TV, The Mist will take audiences on a thrilling ride through a small town grappling with a mysterious and shocking horror,” said Sharon Levy (via Variety), exec vice president of original series at Spike. “Christian and the entire team at TWC-Dimension TV have crafted the framework for a compelling and distinctive series that will resonate with Spike’s expanding audience.”
“We have been fortunate to produce and distribute two of Stephen King’s films, 1408 and The Mist, and are pleased to continue that relationship by making The Mist into a TV series,” said Bob Weinstein, co-chariman of The Weinstein Company. “We’ve had an incredible experience developing the series with Christian, Sharon and her team and are eager to make this series a signature show for Spike.”
