Hulu had greenlighted Castle Rock – an ongoing psychological-horror series that ‘combines the mythological scale and intimate character storytelling of King’s best-loved works, weaving an epic saga of darkness and light, played out on a few square miles of Maine woodland.’
Castle Rock is based on characters and situations created by Stephen King and was created by Sam Shaw & Dustin Thomason, who worked together on the critically acclaimed series Manhattan.
Castle Rockreunites Hulu, King, Bad Robot and Warner Bros. Television, which previously collaborated on event series 11.22.63, based on King’s novel. The series will stream exclusively in the U.S. on Hulu and Warner Bros. Worldwide Television Distribution will distribute globally.
Hulu’s 11.22.63 – based on the bestselling novel by Stephen King – finds an ordinary guy traveling back through time to prevent the assassination of John Fitzgerald Kennedy – by stepping through a closet.
11.22.63 stars James Franco, Chris Cooper, Josh Duhamel, T.R. Knight, Cherry Jones, Sarah Gadon, Lucy Fry, George MacKay and Daniel Webber – and premieres on Presidents’ Day, Monday, February 15th. Check out the new trailer after the jump.
What if you could go back in time and change things – in this case, the assassination of President John F. Kennedy? That’s the premise of Stephen King’s acclaimed novel, 11/22/63 – and Hulu has announced a direct-to-series adaptation of the novel.
The nine-hour event series is from J.J. Abrams’ Bad Robot Productions (Cloverfield, Person of Interest, Fringe, Lost), executive producer/writer Bridget Carpenter (The Red Road), Warner Bros. Television, and the author, Stephen King. No premiere date was given. For further details, follow the jump.
Last summer’s biggest hit drama, Under the Dome (CBS, Mondays, 10/9C) returns with an episode called Heads Will Roll – written by Stephen King. It does get around to where the first season cliffhanger left off, but not immediately – if there’s one thing this show does, it’s tease and tantalize.
Under the Dome (CBS, Mondays, 10/9C) is based on the bestselling novel by Stephen King and is as odd, creepy and unnerving as you might expect from that pedigree. The premise of a town cut off from the rest of the world by a giant, invisible dome might not seem that bad, at first, but as the premiere progresses – and unlikely connections are made – it rapidly becomes something potentially terrifying.
