We previously told you that Spike TV has ordered a pilot based on the Stephen King novella The Mist from Dimension Television. But, we have just learned that the network has bumped the order to a total of ten one-hour episodes. The project will go before cameras this summer with a targeted premiere of sometime in 2017.
The project will be written and executive produced by Christian Torpe (Rita). No definitive word, just yet, on whether or not Torpe will be directing the pilot for the network. No casting announcements have been made at this juncture. But stay tuned for more on this currently in development project as we learn it!
Similar to the feature film, the series will follow the residents of a small town as they deal with a mist of unknown origin that initially seems harmless but soon proves to be anything but.
