Frank Darabont directed the movie, starring a bunch of people who then went with him to make "The Walking Dead" for AMC. This new series was created by Christian Torpe, who told Entertainment Weekly he wants to be "respectful to the source material" without copying the "great adaptation" already out there on film.
"The novella is 200 pages and one location, and we needed to change that to make an ongoing series. But we wanted to remain faithful to the heart of the story." He said the TV series will be set at several locations, including a church and a mall. "We establish different little pressure cookers under the influence of whoever the leader would be in those locations. Each of them come up with different theories or beliefs about what's going on. Eventually, the story lines will dovetail and turn into conflicts."
Here's Spike's trailer, which includes the tagline "Fear. Human. Nature":"The Mist" -- starring Morgan Spector, Alyssa Sutherland, Gus Birney, Danica Curcic, Okezie Morro, Luke Cosgrove, Darren Pettie, Russell Posner, Dan Butler, Isiah Washington, Jr., and Frances Conroy. -- premieres Thursday, June 22 at 10 p.m. on Spike TV.
