    Default Stephen King scripted podcast: Strawberry Spring

    https://www.rollingstone.com/culture...dcast-1199678/
    Constant readers are about to become constant listeners as Stephen King enters the final frontier of storytelling: the podcast.

    King has partnered with Audio Up Media, iHeart Media, and producer Lee Metzger (The Voice) to create Strawberry Spring, a new show based on a tale from his 1978 short story collection Night Shift.

    The series follows a journalist as he hunts for a serial killer named Springheel Jack. Metzger will write and direct, while the show will star Garrett Hedlund, Milo Ventimiglia, Herizen F. Guardiola, Sydney Sweeney, Ken Marino, and Al Madrigal. Philip Alberstat will produce.

    Metzger said in a release: “As a lifelong fan of Stephen King, I couldn’t be more excited to work with Jared, Audio Up, and iHeart Media to bring this story to life. I couldn’t ask for a better project for my first scripted podcast.”

    King remains prolific in 2021 with his new Apple+ series Lisey’s Story, based on his 2006 novel, and his upcoming crime novel, Billy Summers, out August 3rd.

    I don't think King has anything to do with this.

    Agreed, it's not an "official" podcast
    The confusion comes from the original posting by The Wrap : their first reported it was produced by King, and then added a note to say that this is an error and apologise for it

    The original post by The Wrap has also been edited so that it doesnt read anymore that all stories from "Night Shift" will be turned into a podcast. But just that story

    It will actually be an 8 episod podcast /dramatisation

    Not surprising given that this is eight episodes but it seems like this is another case of people using the King name and then using his story as a jumping off point.

    I get the feeling they'll be turning this into a kind of fake "true crime" podcast. I'm intrigued.

    Years ago a Spanish production company produced an adaptation of The Monkey (approved by the publisher) as part of their fiction podcast. It was INCREDIBLE and one piece I never stop recommending.
