Mendelsohn To Lead King Series The Outsider

Emmy-nominee Andrew Bernstein (“Umbrella Academy,” “Ozark,” “Castle Rock,” “Jack Ryan”) has been set to direct several episodes of HBO’s supernatural drama series “The Outsider” based on Stephen King’s bestselling novel.

The story follows a straightforward investigation into the gruesome murder of a local boy leading a seasoned cop and an unorthodox investigator to question everything they believe to be real, as an insidious supernatural force edges its way into the case.

Bernstein will also serve as executive producer on the series which stars Ben Mendelsohn, Cynthia Erivo, Bill Camp, Paddy Considine, Mare Winningham and Hettienne Park. Richard Price (“The Night Of”) will pen the series with Jason Bateman set to direct the first two episodes.
