A TV series based on Stephen King’s novella ‘The Mist’ is coming from The Weinstein Company’s Dimension Television. The story was first adapted as a film from director Frank Darabont in 2007. Christian Torpe (Danish series ‘Rita’) is writing the series, which has King’s blessing. It will center around an original story about a mysterious mist that seeps into a small town, causing endless havoc and containing everything from psychological terrors to deadly creatures. The mist causes personal demons of the town’s residents to be brought forth and forces them to fight the supernatural, along with each other.
Bob Weinstein said “The terror and drama in Stephen King’’s novella are so vast that we felt serialized television is the best place to explore them in greater depth. With this show, Christian has created a fascinating band of characters and a story with infinite scares.”
Megan Spanjian, Matthew Signer and Keith Levine from Dimension TV are overseeing the project.
