The Spike TV network seems to be choosing its words very carefully when it comes to their new show ‘The Mist.’ All of their promo material for the new show makes very sure to say “From a story by Stephen King,” and not simply “Stephen King’s The Mist” or some variation thereof. But this is probably done with good reason: fans who have read the book or seen the 2007 big-screen adaptation know to expect certain things from the story, but it seems that Spike may be focusing on other aspects in their version.
The TV network has given us a new featurette for the show, one that features shots from the series interspersed with “behind-the-scenes” interviews with cast and crew members. It certainly does appear that the series is aiming to scare viewers as much as possible, but a serious focus also seems to be on character development as well.
Take a look for yourself at the new featurette, and get ready to view ‘The Mist’ when it’s unleashed by Spike next month.
Based on a story by Stephen King, Spike’s THE MIST centers around a small town family that is torn apart by a brutal crime. As they deal with the fallout an eerie mist rolls in, suddenly cutting them off from the rest of the world and, in some cases, each other. Family, friends and adversaries become strange bedfellows, battling the mysterious mist and its threats, fighting to maintain morality and sanity as the rules of society break down. THE MIST stars Morgan Spector, Alyssa Sutherland, Gus Birney, Danica Curcic, Okezie Morro, Luke Cosgrove, Darren Pettie, Russell Posner, Dan Butler, Isiah Whitlock Jr., and Frances Conroy.
‘The Mist’ premieres on Thursday, June 22, 2017, on Spike.
