The premiere episode of Spike’s The Mist will be directed by Emmy-winning director Adam Bernstein. The straight-to-series drama is based on Stephen King’s novella of the same name. The TWC-Dimension Television series, which will premiere in 2017, begins production this summer. The series centers around a seemingly innocuous mist that overtakes a small town, leaving chaos in its wake. Christian Torpe is writing and executive producing.
Bernstein is known for his pilots, which include Fargo, 30 Rock, and Scrubs. Better Call Saul, Breaking Bad, Californication, Shameless, Bored to Death, Oz, Homicide: Life on the Street, and Entourage are included in his other credits.
