Series Based On Classic Stephen King Novella

New York, NY, February 25, 2016 - Spike has ordered a production pilot from Dimension Television based on the classic Stephen King novella, "The Mist."

The Spike original scripted series tells a harrowing story about a seemingly innocuous mist that seeps into a small town and creates immense havoc. This will be the first production pilot for a Spike scripted dramatic series since the network's shift towards general entertainment.

"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.

"We are excited to be in business with Spike on their first scripted production pilot and working with the very talented Christian Torpe to further explore Stephen King's classic novella and bring this riveting series to television audiences," said Bob Weinstein, Co-Chariman The Weinstein Company.

Megan Spanjian, VP of Scripted TV, was instrumental in finding and bringing Torpe to the table and will oversee the project for Dimension TV along with Matthew Signer, EVP of Production and Creative Affairs, and Keith Levine, SVP of Production and Development. Torpe is repped by ICM.

Levy, Ted Gold, Senior Vice President, Scripted Original Series, and Lauren Ruggiero, Senior Director, Scripted Programming will oversee the project.

Spike TV debuted its first scripted event series in eight years, "Tut," last July to strong ratings and has recently ordered to series, "Red Mars" based on Kim Stanley Robinson's award-winning "Mars Trilogy."

Dimension TV debuted its first scripted series SCREAM, which was an adaptation of the hit horror film franchise, with MTV. With a successful first season, SCREAM TV was picked up for Season 2 and is in production.
