Spike TV has greenlit “The Mist,” ordering 10 hourlong episodes of the series based on Stephen King’s classic horror novella, Variety has learned.
The series goes into production this summer, and is slated for a 2017 debut.
The Viacom-owned cabler ordered a pilot for “The Mist” this February, though after hearing the pitch for the full series, upped the order to series, before producing the pilot.
TWC-Dimension Television will produce the series, which tells a harrowing story about a seemingly innocuous mist that seeps into a small town and creates immense havoc. Christian Torpe, who is repped by ICM, will serve as exec producer.
