Although horror legend Stephen King has had more work adapted for the screen than perhaps any living author, somehow his work hasn’t be brought into the world of premium, prestige TV, until now.
HBO has picked up an adaptation of his book The Outsider, a murder mystery that adds a touch of the supernatural because, of course, it’s Stephen King. The trailer, which stars Ben Mendolsohn (Bloodline, Star Wars: Rogue One) and Jason Bateman (Ozark), looks like True Detective meets, well, Stephen King. The series will debut on HBO in 2020.
