Last month the trailer for Spike’s series adaption of Stephen King’s The Mist teased of the human drama we would witness. During the MTV Awards late last night a new bloody trailer aired revealing that terrible creatures lurk in the mist.
In the series, the residents of Bridgeville, Maine find themselves engulfed by a foreboding mist containing a myriad of inexplicable and bizarre threats as their humanity is put to the test.
The 10 episode series is from Christian Torpe who not only created the series, but also serves as showrunner and executive producer.
“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.”
Morgan Spector, Alyssa Sutherland, Gus Birney, Danica Curcic, Okezie Morro, Luke Cosgrove, Darren Pettie, Russell Posner, Dan Butler, Isiah Washington, Jr. and Frances Conroy co-star.
Tune in for the series premiere of The Mist on Thursday, June 22 at 10 PM, ET/PT on Spike.
