The new cast joins James Marsden (Westworld) and Amber Heard (Aquaman) in the lead roles as Stu Redman and Frannie Goldsmith, respectively.
Written by Josh Boone and Ben Cavell, The Stand is King’s apocalyptic vision of a world decimated by plague and embroiled in an elemental struggle between good and evil. The fate of mankind rests on the frail shoulders of the 108-year-old Mother Abagail (Goldberg) and a handful of survivors. Their worst nightmares are embodied in a man with a lethal smile and unspeakable powers: Randall Flagg, the Dark Man.
Adapted by Josh Boone and Ben Cavell, The Stand is expected to premiere on CBS All Access sometime in 2020.
