    Default Colorado Kid turn to be a tv movie?

    from Lilja :

    There seams to be info in the last issue of Entertainment Weekly (with J.K. Rowling on the cover as Entertainer of the Year) about a possible TV series loosely based on The Colorado Kid in the future. Hopefully more info will come soon.
    Does anyone have that EW issue?
    What do they tell?

    Without spoilers, I'd be interested to see if the powers that be in a TV series feel they need to change and/or add to the ending.

    I just searched the EW site and didn't find anything. Hmm.
    A true firewasp ninja would never wear such a ridiculous sweater.

    There's logic in nonsense.

    Give me all the bacon and eggs you have.

    I hope they leave the ending alone. That was something I liked about the book...

    The ending pissed me off. But maybe that's just me.

    It did me too, to a point, but I understood why it was done that way. I absolutely wish it had been done differently, though.

    I wanted more from the ending as well.

    As for making a "series," considering the length of the book, they would have to add quite a bit.

    Yeah, there was a little blurb in EW magazine (not online). I'll see if I can find it again...

    Yep, here's the story. It is on page 21 of the November 30, 2007 issue (cover story is The Top 25 Entertainers of the Year) of Entertainment Weekly. Okay, okay, I'll transcribe the entire thing for you:

    Television by Lynette Rice
    ROCKY MOUNTAIN GUY

    (little photo of SK)

    While the strike could throw a wrench into all current development, ABC has a provocative new drama in the works that's loosely based on Stephen King's 2005 mystery novel The Colorado Kid. The author and EW columnist describes the script, from The Dead Zone's Sam Ernst and Jim Dunn, as "closer to The X-Files than Supernatural." King will have a small stake in the show (currently dubbed Sanctuary) should it go to series, "but it's not something that keeps me up at nights, the way Kingdom Hospital did."


    There you go.

    Default Haven - The Colorado Kid TV miniseries

    As per Lilja via Bev:

    According to Variety, E1 Entertainment has committed to 13 hour-long episodes adapting Stephen King’s novella The Colorado Kid into a television series called Haven.

    Scott Shepherd will serve as showrunner and exec produce with Lloyd Segan and Shawn Piller, all three of whom were exec producers on USA Network's version of The Dead Zone.

    Two more Dead Zone alumni, Sam Ernst and Jim Dunn, are writing the pilot and will also serve as exec producers.

    The report describes the project as, “centers on a spooky town in Maine where cursed folk live normal lives in exile. When those curses start returning, FBI agent Audrey Parker is brought in to keep those supernatural forces at bay — while trying to unravel the mysteries of Haven.”

    E1 is in advanced talks with several European broadcast partners to sign on and help finance the show. After securing an international partner, the company will turn its attention to finding U.S. and Canadian broadcasters.

    That doesn't sound at all like Colorado Kid. It sounds like they're using the King name and title for something completely different. Also, the town of Haven is the same named town that most of The Tommyknockers takes place.

    I wonder if the mystery of the Colorado Kid will be the first episode, and they'll go on with it from there. The Pillars did quite a good job of taking the DZ concept and running with it for five or six years.

    Well...it might not sound very faithfull, but that team made an incredible job with The Dead Zone series (Sadly it was cancelled and no ending given so far), so I'm looking forward to hear more about this

    Maybe it's been too long since I read Colorado Kid, but this 'Haven' sounds nothing like it. I may just be crazy. I don't know.

    it will be like 'Dead Zone' tv series, so all the episodes will be something totally new and 'Colorado Kid' possibly will be as a background and maybe even in the first episode only.

    I'm trusting in this project. I loved The Dead Zone series, so the creative team behind must have a good idea in their hands.

    Every time I see the title of this thread, I think it's about the Haven FOUNDATION.

    Default Stephen King’s Colorado Kid Coming To Syfy As "Haven"

    Syfy has started production on Haven, a one-hour drama based on Stephen King’s 2005 mystery novella The Colorado Kid.

    The series, which debuts July 19 at 10 p.m. EST/PST, follows a shrewd FBI agent Audrey Parker (Emily Rose of Jericho and ER) with a lost past who arrives in a small town in Maine to investigate a murder. She soon discovers that the town, Haven, is a refuge for people with a range of supernatural abilities.

    Haven also stars Eric Balfour (24, Six Feet Under) as the mysterious Duke Crocker and Lucas Bryant (Queer as Folk, M.V.P.) as local cop Nathan Wuornos.

    The pilot is directed by Adam Kane (The Mentalist, Pushing Daisies) from a script by The Dead Zone team of Sam Ernst and Jim Dunn, who serve as executive producers of the series. Scott Shepherd (Tru Calling, The Dead Zone) is the showrunner.

    The Colorado Kid is a back story,” Syfy’s Mark Stern is quoted as saying by the Los Angeles Times. “These guys have done a great job of incorporating it into a larger franchise. The bones of The Colorado Kid are definitely buried in this larger franchise.”
    The Man In Black Fled Across The Desert...

    ...And The Gunslinger Followed.
