Jerusalem's Lot (Epix)
Quote:Epix is getting into the Stephen King business.

The MGM-backed premium cable network has handed out a straight-to-series order for a drama based on the author's 1978 short story Jerusalem's Lot with Adrien Brody set to star. (The short was first published in the 1978 collection Night Shift and was also published in the illustrated edition of Salem's Lot.)

Set in the 1850s, the drama follows Capt. Charles Boone (Brody), who relocates his family of three children to his ancestral home in the sleepy town of Preacher's Corners, Maine, after his wife dies at sea. The show will see him confronting the secrets of his family's sordid history and fight to end the darkness that has plagued them for generations.

Production on the 10-episode series will begin in May in Halifax, Nova Scotia, with an eye toward launching in 2020.

The series is exec produced in-house by the newly launched Epix Productions. Donald De Line (Wayward Pines) will exec produce. Jason Filardi and Peter Filardi serve as showrunners.

Well into an epic King read/reread right now, but haven't got to Night Shift yet. Is this actually tied to Salem's Lot in some way other than name?
Eh, kinda. There’s a few vampires. It doesn’t really track, unless you squint a bunch.
