“We are excited to be in business with Spike on their first scripted production pilot and working with the very talented Christian Torpe to further explore Stephen King’s classic novella and bring this riveting series to television audiences,” said Bob Weinstein, Co-Chariman of The Weinstein Company.
 
Levy, Ted Gold, SVP, Scripted Original Series, and Lauren Ruggiero, Senior Director, Scripted Programming will oversee the project.
