Stephen King's 2014 novel "Mr Mercedes," a police thriller and the first of the best-selling author's Bill Hodges Trilogy, will be made into a 10-episode TV series to be shot in Charleston starting early next year.
The book was adapted by showrunner David E. Kelley and produced by Sonar Entertainment, according to the Hollywood Reporter. It will star Brendan Gleeson (HBO's "Into the Storm") and premier in 2018 on DirecTV and AT7T Uverse. Executive producers are Kelley and Jack Bender.
The production team currently is looking for background extras and stand-ins. For information, go to their site.
