Stephen King’s ‘The Mist’ Gets Spike Pilot Order


Good news for Stephen King fans, The Mist has been given a pilot order from Spike.


Spike has ordered a pilot for “The Mist,” based on the classic Stephen King novella, Variety has learned.

The scripted drama, which hails from Dimension Television, tells a harrowing story about a seemingly innocuous mist that seeps into a small town and creates immense havoc.  Christian Torpe will executive produce. Torpe created “Rita” in Denmark, now finishing its fourth season, and has developed programming for both Showtime and AMC.

“We are thrilled to join forces with the incredibly creative Christian Torpe and Dimension Films to develop Stephen King’s enthralling novella to a compelling series unlike anything else on television,” said Sharon Levy, Executive Vice President, Original Series, Spike.
