Along with the upcoming highly anticipated remake of It and The Dark Tower adaptation, it’s time for another one of Stephen King’s stories to be brought to life (again), for the small screen that is. The Mist will premiere on Spike on June 22, and here’s a very first trailer that will give you nightmares.
Based on King’s 1980 novella of the same name, The Mist centers around a small town family that is torn apart by a brutal crime. As they deal with the fallout an eerie mist rolls in, suddenly cutting them off from the rest of the world, and in some cases, each other. Family, friends and adversaries become strange bedfellows, battling the mysterious mist and its threats, fighting to maintain morality and sanity as the rules of society break down.
The cast includes Morgan Spector, Frances Conroy, Alyssa Sutherland, Gus Birney, Dan Butler, Luke Cosgrove, Danica Curcic, Okezie Morro, Darren Pettie, Russell Posner and Isiah Whitlock, Jr.
Spike ordered 10 episodes for the first season of the series – which will each last 1 hour – in the hope that it develops into a signature show for the TV network.
Originally set in Bridgton, Maine, The Mist was mostly shot in Halifax, Nova Scotia. “We were intent on finding the perfect location – a place that could double for Maine, where the story is set, and one with an experienced crew base and proven track record that would work to fulfill our other requirements,” said Tom Prince, production manager on the series.
