Spike Orders Stephen King’s “The Mist” Pilot

Spike TV has ordered an event series pilot based on famed author Stephen King’s classic 1980 novella “The Mist”.

Dimension Television will produce the project which kicks off when a strange mist seeps into a small town, anyone who becomes engulfed in it soon finds themselves food for the nasty creatures that lurk inside. The action follows a group of townsfolk trapped in a supermarket and the tensions that quickly build.

Christian Torpe will executive produce the series which would order several series the network has in the works following orders for adaptations of Kim Stanley Robinson’s Mars Trilogy and “Pendergast” based on the book series by Douglas Preston and Lincoln Child.

Frank Darabont directed a previous film adaptation of the work in 2007.
