New Stephen King Series
CBS All Access execs announced they're are ordering a 10-episode limited series adaptation of Stephen King’s bestselling post-apocalyptic horror/fantasy novel, The Stand. The book was previously adapted by ABC into a four-part horror miniseries in 1994. Josh Boone will direct as well as co-write with Ben Cavell (SEAL Team).
“I'm excited and so very pleased that The Stand is going to have a new life on this exciting new platform,” King said in a statement to Deadline. “The people involved are men and women who know exactly what they’re doing; the scripts are dynamite. The result bids to be something memorable and thrilling. I believe it will take viewers away to a world they hope will never happen.”
Plus, a sneak peek at a few upcoming King adaptations for television.
“With over 400 million books sold around the world, Stephen King is one of our greatest living authors and The Stand is widely considered the crown jewel of his work. Millions of fans have been waiting for a modern interpretation that delivers on its depth, scope and ambition,” said Julie McNamara, EVP, Original Content, CBS All Access. “We are thrilled to be working with Stephen, Josh, Ben and a dedicated team working passionately to bring this brilliant material to life.”
