Chapelwaite is coming soon to EPIX. A premiere date for the series, which stars Adrien Brody and Emily Hampshire, has now been set. The series is based on Jerusalem’s Lot by Stephen King.
EPIX revealed more about the new series in a press release.
“Premium network EPIX announced today that Chapelwaite, based on the short story Jerusalem’s Lot by Stephen King and starring Academy Award® winner Adrien Brody and Emily Hampshire, will premiere on Sunday, August 22 at 10pm ET/PT. Set in the 1850s, the series follows Captain Charles Boone (Brody), who relocates his family of three children to his ancestral home in the small, seemingly sleepy town of Preacher’s Corners, Maine after his wife dies at sea. However, Charles will soon have to confront the secrets of his family’s sordid history, and fight to end the darkness that has plagued the Boones for generations.
Hampshire plays Rebecca Morgan, an ambitious young woman who left Preacher’s Corners to attend Mount Holyoke College, and has returned home with an advance to write a story for the new and prestigious Atlantic Magazine. Her writer’s block lifts when Boone arrives in town with his children, and despite her mother’s protests, Rebecca applies to be governess of the infamous Chapelwaite manor and the Boone family in order to write about them. In doing so, Rebecca will not only craft the next great gothic novel, she’ll unravel a mystery that has plagued her own family for years.
In addition to Brody, the series is executive produced by Donald De Line (Ready Player One, Wayward Pines), Jason Filardi, Peter Filardi and Burr Steers. Chapelwaite is produced by EPIX Studios.
