Stephen King is headed to television … again. According to The Hollywood Reporter, David E. Kelley will executive produce a new series for Audience Network based on King’s novel Mr. Mercedes.
Published in 2014, the book follows Bill Hodges, a retired detective who begins receiving mysterious letters from a killer called “Mr. Mercedes.”
The mystery drama will star Brendan Gleeson as Hodges, with Anton Yelchin playing Brady Hartsfield, “a mentally deranged ice cream truck driver.” Mr. Mercedes is expected to premiere on the Audience Network in 2018.
