    I agree. Really awful! Sorry...not to take away the pleasure for the person who's involved with the project, but this sure sounds like standard TV Š la Haven. A series that only uses the Mist as a backdrop for typical trite drama and crimes and a bit of romance, and whatnot. Some people like this kind of thing, which is fine, but as a King fan like me, this is not exciting at all! It may be better than Under the Dome (which show isn't?) but it's just another Haven-like show, a new trend in Hollywood TV Land that I do not like! I look forward to the remake of It (and yes, also the Dark Tower although I have my fears regarding that one), but this unnecessary Mist rip-off will get a quick glance and then very likely be forgotten and avoided!

    Hey. You. Yes, you.

    Have you read Shadowland by Peter Straub?

    You've already read him in The Talisman and Black House - there's no excuse for not going further!

    If you haven't read Shadowland - just do it.

    Do it.

    Morgan Spector has joined the cast to star in Spike's new scripted original series "The Mist." From TWC-Dimension Television (TV) based on the classic Stephen King novella, "The Mist" goes into production this summer and airs in 2017. The announcement was jointly made today by Sharon Levy, Executive Vice President, Original Series, Spike and Bob Weinstein, Co-Chairman The Weinstein Company.

    "The Mist" tells the story of a foreboding mist that arrives in one small town ushering in a terrifying new reality for its residents, putting their humanity to the test. What will people do to survive when blinded by fear?

    Morgan Spector will play "Kevin Cunningham," the protagonist of the series. Kevin is the epitome of the modern, liberal and civilized man; devoted to his wife and teenaged daughter. He lives his life by high moral values and throughout his life he has refused to give into the anger and prejudice he sees in other people. However, with the arrival of the mist, his moral compass will be put to the test for his and his family's survival.

    Spector just concluded a run in Manhattan Theatre Club's lauded US premiere of "Incognito." His extensive stage credits include starring roles in "Ironbound," "Machinal," "A View From the Bridge," "Harvey," and "Russian Transport," for which he received a Drama Desk Award nomination. He'll next be seen on film in "Permission" and also appears as Sylvester Stallone opposite Liev Schreiber and Naomi Watts in "The Bleeder," based on the true story that inspired "Rocky." In the television world, Spector has had recurring arcs on HBO's "Boardwalk Empire" and CBS's "Person of Interest" and was a regular on "Allegiance" for ABC. He's also made notable guest star roles on several series including "Orange is the New Black" and "How to Make It In America." Spector is represented by Innovative Artists.

    Spector rounds out a cast that includes Frances Conroy, Alyssa Sutherland, Gus Birney, Dan Butler, Luke Cosgrove, Danica Curcic, Okezie Morro, Darren Pettie, Russell Posner and Isiah Whitlock, Jr.

    Christian Torpe and Amanda Segel are Executive Producers of "The Mist."

    Bob Weinstein, Harvey Weinstein and David Glasser are Executive Producers for TWC-Dimension Television with Megan Spanjian, Matthew Signer and Keith Levine as Producers.

    Levy, Ted Gold, Senior Vice President, Scripted Original Series, and Lauren Ruggiero, Senior Director, Scripted Programming will oversee the project for Spike with Vlad Wolynetz as Co-Executive Producer.

    Just had a very cool chat with one of my contacts. I told him about our site and that he should check I out. Mentioned that as a collective we are concerned it could fly towards the vine of Under the Dome territory. He assures me this will NOT be happening. It is a 10 episode arc and the story will be fan oriented (not sure I buy this 100%). He also said when I asked about focusing on Arrowhead much more... That he couldn't say but I had a great thought there... I hung up the phone thinking to myself "how would he know about arrowhead unless he read the book which he could have OR its in the script. His response had me believing that perhaps we will see more of it that we do in the book or movie anyways. I also asked where we were on the promo items and since it just started filming today... He wouldn't have an answer for a bit. I'll keep ya'll posted!!!

    This series seems strangely redundant after getting an excellent adaptation not that long ago.

    I like the ending too, BTW. Maybe my favorite thing about it is that it's suggested right in the novella. A lot of people seem to miss that.

    I checked the gun and then put it into the glove compartment. Ollie had reloaded it after the expedition to the drugstore. The rest of the shells had disappeared with him, but that was all right. He had fired at Mrs. Carmody, he had fired once at the clawed thing, and the gun had discharged once when it hit the ground. There were four of us in the Scout, but if push came right down to shove, I'd find some other way out for myself.

    There's been a lot of teasing and wonder about the upcoming AMS title and it seem that it may actually be subtitled "THE MIST" !

    AN update for everyone. I just got off the phone with one of the production team members. Due to budget they are not moving forward with any "swag" I am sorry guys but I tried. They indicated they think they are getting a 2nd season... early buzz is good but I hold no water in that... and let's be honest... do we want another Under the Dome? NO. Either way she said if there is a next season... they will have more money... Sorry guys! kris

    When he said "It is not the same story as in the book and the movie, nor is it the same characters," he started to lose me, but when he mentioned the TV adaptation of Fargo, he got my interest back.

    "Mr. King...told me that as long as I didnít do anything safe and ordinary, he would be happy." I can get behind that sentiment.
    Hey. You. Yes, you.

    I'll wait for the reviews but looks pretty mediocre to be honest.

    It looks like the same type of concept. Take the original story and expand on it. Obviously they are going to focus on more than just the one group of people in the grocery store.
    Hearts are tough, she said, most times hearts don't break, and I'm sure that's right . . . but what about then? What about who we were then? What about hearts in Atlantis?

    I don't believe the people we know from the grocery store are even going to be a part of this.

    The official presentation :

    When the residents of Bridgeville, Maine find themselves engulfed by a foreboding mist containing a myriad of inexplicable and bizarre threats, their humanity is put to the test in THE MIST, a new 10 episode serialized drama premiering Thursday, June 22 at 10 PM, ET/PT on Spike.

    Based on a story by Stephen King, THE MIST has been re-imagined for television by Executive Producer and Writer Christian Torpe and produced for Spike by TWC-Dimension Television. Spike’s 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.

    Oh, and SpikeTV told me that the foreign release will be done through Netflix !

    I watched a trailer/preview for this and it looks okay. The preview made it look slightly like the Mist is making people act differently. Maybe they are just getting at that the people act differently because of the Mist.
    Move along. Nothing to see here.

    If that is the case, it will be more like James Herbert's The Fog.

    This trailer simultaneously makes me want to watch this miniseries and makes me wish someone would make a miniseries out of King's story (I liked the movie but it could use 4-6 hours of screen time).

    Really? The movie (with the exception of the ending) was pretty much scene for scene from the story. They didn't cut anything out.

    I think this looks very promising. Of course, it's just a trailer, but I especially like the look (it seems) into events at the military base. They'd have all kinds of material to explore. The trailer seems to indicate that they would explore all the different aspects of the "Event".

    I was thinking the same thing. It's not like the original story was a full-length novel. It was only 134 pages long in Skeleton Crew.
    Hearts are tough, she said, most times hearts don't break, and I'm sure that's right . . . but what about then? What about who we were then? What about hearts in Atlantis?
