The Stephen King adaptation train keeps a-rollin' today as it was just announced Epix has given a 10-episode straight-to-series order to a drama based on King's short story JERUSALEM’S LOT starring Adrien Brody. Production is set to begin in May 2020 with a planned release in FALL 2020.
Peter Filardi (SALEM'S LOT, FLATLINERS) and Jason Filardi (17 AGAIN, BRINGING DOWN THE HOUSE) will write the series which is set in the 1850s and follows
Captain Charles Boone (Brody), who relocates his family of three children to his ancestral home in the small, seemingly sleepy town of Preacher’s Corners, Maine after his wife dies at sea. However, Charles will soon have to confront the secrets of his family’s sordid history, and fight to end the darkness that has plagued the Boones for generations.
Epix President Michael Wright says:
This series is an intense, absolutely terrifying reimagining of classic gothic horror. We can’t wait to work with the exceptional team of Donald De Line and Jason and Peter Filardi, along with our phenomenal lead actor, Adrien Brody…and of course, when it comes to horror, it doesn’t get any better or more masterful than Stephen King.
The Filardi brothers will serve as showrunners and executive produce with Donald De Line (READY PLAYER ONE, WAYWARD PINES). Once again, Production is set to begin in May 2020 in Nova Scotia with a planned release in FALL 2020. Are you excited about this new series? Let us know below!
