The 10-Episode Series Goes Into Production This Summer And Debut in 2017

New York, NY, April 14, 2016 - Spike has greenlit a new original scripted series, "The Mist" from TWC-Dimension Television (TV) based on the classic Stephen King novella. The network has ordered 10 one-hour episodes and will into go production this summer and debut in 2017.

"The Mist" tells a harrowing story about a seemingly innocuous mist that seeps into a small town and creates immense havoc.

In February, Spike ordered a production pilot for "The Mist." Upon hearing the series pitch and reading the script, the network has decided to go straight to series.

"From the brilliant mind of Stephen King and the incredible production team at TWC-Dimension TV, 'The Mist' will take audiences on a thrilling ride through a small town grappling with a mysterious and shocking horror," said Levy.

"Christian and the entire team at TWC-Dimension TV have crafted the framework for a compelling and distinctive series that will resonate with Spike's expanding audience," said Levy.

"We have been fortunate to produce and distribute two of Stephen King's films, 1408 and THE MIST, and are pleased to continue that relationship by making THE MIST into a TV series," said Bob Weinstein, Co-Chariman The Weinstein Company. "We've had an incredible experience developing the series with Christian, Sharon and her team and are eager to make this series a signature show for Spike."

Christian Torpe serves as the Executive Producer for Spike's "The Mist." Torpe created the successful show RITA in Denmark, now finishing its fourth season, and has developed programming for both Showtime and AMC.

Megan Spanjian, EVP of Scripted TV, was instrumental in finding and bringing Torpe to the table and will oversee the project for TWC-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 and Artists in Residence.

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