Stephen King’s novella The Mist, which first made its way to the big screen via the acclaimed Frank Darabont adaptation in 2007, is headed to TV land on Spike in the United States. Christian Torpe (Rita) is behind the small screen adaptation which sees an idyllic visit engulfed by an unnatural fog inhabited by creatures from another dimension. This first season will run ten episodes.
The original story had a group of survivors holed up in a local supermarket and they became more dangerous to themselves than the nasties outside. The TV series widens the scope and doesn’t confine the premise to just the store.
Frances Conway, Morgan Spector, Alyssa Sutherland, Gus Birney, and Darren Pettie star in the show.
THE MIST SEASON ONE premieres on SPIKE 22 JUNE, 2017
