Universal Television is developing Stephen King’s 2007 short story “Ayana” into a drama series which NBC is currently considering.
Chris Sparling (“Buried”) will write the pilot with Ben Haber producing while Jordan Kerner will executive produce.
Originally published in 2007, “Ayana” was later included in King’s collection, “Just After Sunset,” in November 2008.
Collected in 2008’s “Just After Sunset,” the story is set in 1982 and follows a narrator who talks of how a blind seven-year-old girl named Ayana kissed his dying father and healed him.
In return though, the narrator must repay this miracle and is called upon to do so over the years.
