Following the success of SCREAM THE SERIES on MTV, Dimension Television announced today that they are bringing THE MIST, based on the classic Stephen King novella and film by Frank Darabont, to television. Stephen King has given his blessing to the project, which is a continuing series from acclaimed writer Christian Torpe. Torpe created the successful show RITA in Denmark, now finishing its fourth season, and has developed programming for both Showtime and AMC.

Using the book and movie as influences, the series tells an original story about a seemingly innocuous mist that seeps into a small town but contains limitless havoc. From psychological terrors to otherworldly creatures, the mist causes the town residents' darkest demons to appear forcing them to battle the supernatural event and, more importantly, each other.

"The terror and drama in Stephen King's novella are so vast that we felt serialized television is the best place to explore them in greater depth," said Bob Weinstein, co-chairman The Weinstein Company and Dimension Films. "With this show, Christian has created a fascinating band of characters and a story with infinite scares."

Frank Darabont's fillm adaptation was released in 2007 and grossed just $57 million, but went on to achieve critical acclaim.

Last September, Dimension Television announced that they were bringing THE MIST, based on the classic Stephen King novella and film by Frank Darabont, to television, and now word comes that the Viacom-owned cable network Spike has given a pilot order for the show.

Stephen King has given his blessing to the project, which is a continuing series from acclaimed writer Christian Torpe. Torpe created the successful show RITA in Denmark, now finishing its fourth season, and has developed programming for both Showtime and AMC.

Using the book and movie as influences, the series tells an original story about a seemingly innocuous mist that seeps into a small town but contains limitless havoc. From psychological terrors to otherworldly creatures, the mist causes the town residents' darkest demons to appear forcing them to battle the supernatural event and, more importantly, each other.

"We are excited to be in business with Spike on their first scripted production pilot and working with the very talented Christian Torpe to further explore Stephen King's classic novella and bring this riveting series to television audiences," said Bob Weinstein, co-chairman The Weinstein Company and Dimension Films.

"The terror and drama in Stephen King's novella are so vast that we felt serialized television is the best place to explore them in greater depth," Weinstein said previously. "With this show, Christian has created a fascinating band of characters and a story with infinite scares."

Not even two months after ordering it to pilot, Spike TV has handed out a ten-episode, straight-to-series pickup for the TV drama series adaptation of Stephen King's 1980 novella THE MIST. The network was reportedly so impressed with the series pitch and script that they opted to go straight to series rather than proceed with a typical pilot. Filming begins this Summer ahead of a 2017 debut.

The trailer and poster are here for Spike's new original scripted THE MIST, based on the classic Stephen King novella of the same name.

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. From TWC-Dimension Television, THE MIST series stars Morgan Spector, Alyssa Sutherland, Gus Birney, Danica Curcic, Okezie Morro, Luke Cosgrove, Darren Pettie, Russell Posner, Dan Butler, Isiah Washington, Jr. and Frances Conroy.
