Stephen King’s foray into hard-boiled noir, The Colorado Kid, wasn’t exactly among his most acclaimed efforts. That’s not stopping the powers that be from putting the story on film, however, as it’s set to become a thirteen-episode miniseries on the Sci-Fi Channel (sorry, I can’t bring myself to adhere to the ‘proper’ spelling).
According to Variety, the story will air under the name Haven under the creative eyes of Lloyd Segan and Shawn Piller – the showrunners responsible for all six seasons of The Dead Zone series. Scott Shepard will executive produce alongside the King-familiar duo, but will they be able to recapture similar success with considerably weaker material?
”Haven” centers on a spooky town in Maine where cursed folk live normal lives in exile. When those curses start returning, FBI agent Audrey Parker is brought in to keep those supernatural forces at bay — while trying to unravel the mysteries of Haven.
