AT&T AUDIENCE Network(R) New Original Series "Mr. Mercedes" Premieres Aug. 9

Series Based on Stephen King's Best Selling Detective Novel

EL SEGUNDO, May 11, 2017 - The new AT&T* AUDIENCE Network original series from Sonar Entertainment, "Mr. Mercedes," is premiering Wednesday, Aug. 9 at 8 p.m. ET/PT. Watch it exclusively on AUDIENCE Network through DIRECTV, AT&T U-verse, and DIRECTV NOW.

"Mr. Mercedes" is based on the best-selling novel by Stephen King. David E. Kelley ("Big Little Lies,""Boston Legal," and "Ally McBeal,") wrote and adapted for television and Jack Bender ("Lost," "Under the Dome," "Game of Thrones") directed multiple episodes. The duo serve as executive producers, along with King and Temple Hill Entertainment's Marty Bowen and Wyck Godfrey. Sonar Entertainment is producing and distributing worldwide outside the US.

"Mr. Mercedes" stars Brendan Gleeson ("Harry Potter") as Detective Bill Hodges, Harry Treadaway ("Penny Dreadful") as Brady Hartsfield, Kelly Lynch ("Magic City") as Deborah Hartsfield, Jharrel Jerome ("Moonlight") as Jerome Robinson, Scott Lawrence ("Avatar") as Detective Peter Dixon, Robert Stanton ("Mercury Rising") as Anthony "Robi" Frobisher, Breeda Wool ("Unreal") as Lou Linklatter, Justine Lupe ("Francis Ha") as Holly Gibney, and Ann Cusack ("Nightcrawler") as Olivia Trelawney, with Mary Louise-Parker ("Weeds") as Janey Patterson, and Holland Taylor ("The Truman Show") as Ida Silver.

"Mr. Mercedes" follows a demented killer Brady Hartsfield (Treadaway) who taunts a retired police detective Bill Hodges (Gleeson) with a series of lurid letters and emails, forcing the ex-cop to undertake a private, and potentially felonious, crusade to bring the killer to justice before he is able to strike again.

Stephen King describes "Mr. Mercedes" as his first hard-boiled detective tale. The novel was published by Scribner in June 2014 and became an immediate No. 1 New York Times Bestseller upon its release. Shortly after the release of the novel, King announced that "Mr. Mercedes" was the first of a projected trilogy. The second novel, "Finders Keepers," was published by Scribner in June 2015, and the third novel, "End of Watch," was published by Scribner in June 2016.

AUDIENCE Network offers a compelling lineup of original, provocative content. Its growing slate of critically acclaimed original series includes:

· MMA drama "KINGDOM," starring Frank Grillo and Nick Jonas.

· Crime drama "ICE," starring Cam Gigandet, Jeremy Sisto, Ray Winstone, and Donald Sutherland.

· "Poly-romantic" comedy "YOU ME HER" starring Greg Poehler, Rachel Blanchard and Priscilla Faia.

· Suspense-drama "ROGUE," starring Cole Hauser, Meaghan Rath and Ashley Greene.

AT&T AUDIENCE Network is available on DIRECTV Ch. 239 or U-verse TV Ch. 1114 and via live streaming on the DIRECTV and U-verse apps and DIRECTV NOW.
