Stephen King's The Mist Scores 10-Episode Series Order at Spike

Something wicked next year comes… to Spike.

The network on Tuesday gave a 10-episode series order to The Mist, based on the Stephen King novella about a seemingly innocuous fog that seeps into a small town and creates immense havoc.

In February, Spike ordered a pilot, but decided to go straight to series after hearing the pitch and reading the script.

Filming will begin this summer, the network noted, with the goal of a 2017 debut.

The Mist got the big-screen treatment in 2007, with Thomas Jane, Marcia Gay Harden, Andre Braugher and Laurie Holden headlining the ensemble cast.

The new series is written and executive-produced by Danish scribe Christian Torpe.
