Stephen King's "The Mist" is being developed as a TV series by Scream producers Dimension Television and writer Christia Torpe, creator of a Danish show called Rita.

King has given his blessing to this adaptation of “The Mist,” as he did with Frank Darabont's amazing adaptation from 2007.


Form the release:
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.

“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,” said Bob Weinstein, co-chairman of The Weinstein Company and Dimension Films. “With this show, Christian has created a fascinating band of characters and a story with infinite scares.”

I'm not a King fan (he lost me with the ending in Cell). I saw Mist and was intrigued with the concept. I had some problems with it I liked the dark ending. I'll give this a watch. Look forward to see how this develops.

MTV, not a network that fills me with confidence.
