    The next Stephen King joint coming toTV? The Mist. I would watch the shit out of this.

    http://www.thewrap.com/stephen-kings-the-mist-in-the-works-as-tv-series/

    Stephen King‘s “The Mist” is being developed as a TV series by “Scream” producer Dimension Television and writer Christia Torpe, who created the hit Danish series “Rita,” it was announced Wednesday. King has blessed this adaptation of “The Mist,” which was previously adapted for the big screen by “The Walking Dead” creator Frank Darabont. Using the book and movie as influences, the series will tell 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. - See more at: http://www.thewrap.com/stephen-kings-the-mist-in-the-works-as-tv-series/#.dpuf

    The military was conducting experiments and opened up an interdimensional rift that monsters came through. What more explanation do you need?

    I think the only similarity it had to the book was that there was a dome. I'm not even sure anything was resolved before the cancellation.

    i hate these shows that have no plot beyond every week they are being chased bu a new monster. its too easy to make the next Lost or Heros by taking an idea that should be Chapter 1 and stretching it into the entire story. People should demand fleshed out stories.

    King doesnt seem to do well on TV. Kingdom Hospital was a disaster too.
