In the past few months, we have been keeping a close eye on the development of Spike TV’s The Mist. A brand new TV show based on Stephen King’s novel of the same name. After moving forward with a pilot episode of The Mist in February, the network has officially decided to order 10 one-hour episodes with plans to go straight into production this summer.
Upon hearing the series pitch and reading the script, Spike TV is confident the series will resonate well with their growing audience.
