Spike TV has given a pilot order to a drama based on Stephen King’s 1980 horror novella “The Mist.”
Hailing from The Weinstein Company’s Dimension Television, the series centers on a small town that’s suddenly enveloped in an unnatural fog that conceals otherworldly threats. Dimension announced development of the project in September.
“The Mist” was previously adapted for film in 2007 by Frank Darabont (“The Walking Dead”), who also wrote and directed “The Shawshank Redemption” and “The Green Mile,” based on King’s works.
Deadline reports that Christian Torpe, creator of the Danish comedy-drama “Rita,” will serve as executive producer.
