Spike TV have picked up the rights to the property and are aiming for a 2017 release
By Jay Hunter – Earlier this year we heard that Spike TV would be adapting Stephen King’s, The Mist into a television series. Since then, all has been quiet but it seems the show is now moving along nicely with production to start in just a few weeks.
David Boyd, of The Walking Dead fame has been confirmed to direct the series ahead of it’s 2017 debut. Following a similar story to that of the book and movie, the show will focus on a foreboding mist that arrives in one small town, ushering in a terrifying new reality for its residents and putting their humanity to the test.
Morgan Spector, Frances Conroy, Alyssa Sutherland, Gus Birney, Dan Butler, Luke Cosgrove, Danica Curcic, Okezie Morro, Darren Pettie, Russell Posner, and Isiah Whitlock, Jr. are all set to star in the show, which will be comprised of 10 one-hour episodes.
