Stephen King’s “The Mist” is coming to TV. The project is being developed by Dimension television and writer Christia Torpe, who created the hit Danish series “Rita”, which is now finishing it’s fourth season.
With Stephen King’s blessing they are using the book and movie as influences, the series will tell an original story about a seemingly innocuous mist that seeps into a small town but contains limitless havoc. From psychological terrors to otherworldly creatures, the mist causes the town residents’ darkest demons to appear forcing them to battle the supernatural event and, more importantly, each other.
Megan Spanjian, VP of scripted TV, Matthew Signer, EVP of production and creative affairs, and Keith Levine, SVP of production and development, will oversee the project for Dimension TV.
