Stephen King’s “The Mist” to roll in on Spike TV

The MistHorror master Stephen King saw success with the run of Under The Dome on CBS, and now Variety is reporting that King will be returning to television again, this time with a series adaptation of his science fiction-horror novella The Mist, with plans to have it land in 2017 on Spike TV.

The network originally ordered a pilot in February, but before it even had a chance of being completed they gave the green light for a series of 10 hour long episodes (Did the execs at Spike TV like what they saw?). TWC-Dimension TV produced Frank Darabont’s 2007 feature film The Mist, and they are returning to produce this series. And, for you sci-fi genre fans, Spike TV is looking to another sci-fi classic for their network, and that is Red Mars by Kim Stanley Robinson.
Do you think that Spike TV can have a hit with their production of The Mist? Is this a good move for Spike TV? Any thoughts about the same production company returning from the 2007 feature film to work on the TV series? Who would you like to see cast in the new series?
