We’ve been following the production of The Mist TV series, coming to SpikeTV on June 22nd at 10 PM, since the project was first announced. We saw the first chilling trailer for the series from showrunner Christian Torpe a couple weeks ago, but the latest promo (released just a few hours ago) really ups the horror and gore. Have a look at Destruction below.
Official Synopsis: Based on a story by Stephen King, THE MIST has been re-imagined for television by Executive Producer and Writer Christian Torpe and produced for Spike by TWC-Dimension Television. Spike’s THE MIST centers around a small town family that is torn apart by a brutal crime. As they deal with the fallout an eerie mist rolls in, suddenly cutting them off from the rest of the world, and in some cases, each other. Family, friends and adversaries become strange bedfellows, battling the mysterious mist and its threats, fighting to maintain morality and sanity as the rules of society break down.
THE MIST stars Morgan Spector, Alyssa Sutherland, Gus Birney, Danica Curcic, Okezie Morro, Luke Cosgrove, Darren Pettie, Russell Posner, Dan Butler, Isiah Washington, Jr., and Frances Conroy.
“Unfortunately, I thought it was incredibly timely to do a show about what people do when they are blinded by fear,” Torpe says. “We look around at what’s going on in the world, and everyone is constantly looking for someone to blame, or someone to lead them to the promised land. They find people to hate, either because of their gender or race or faith. Those are elements we tap into — how fear drives things like misogyny and homophobia.”
