It’s been awhile since we’ve gotten an update on Spike’s upcoming TV adaptation of “The Mist,” but with production now under way, some news has come in with regard to a new key behind-the-scenes figure involved with the project.
From the Press Release:
David Boyd has been hired as a producer/director on the new Spike and TWC-Dimension Television (TV) scripted series “The Mist.” Based on the classic Stephen King novella, “The Mist” is currently in production in Nova Scotia. The series will premiere on Spike in 2017.
“The Mist” tells the story of a foreboding mist that arrives in one small town, ushering in a terrifying new reality for its residents, putting their humanity to the test. What will people do to survive when blinded by fear? The cast includes Morgan Spector, Frances Conroy, Alyssa Sutherland, Gus Birney, Dan Butler, Luke Cosgrove, Danica Curcic, Okezie Morro, Darren Pettie, Russell Posner, and Isiah Whitlock, Jr.
Boyd transitioned as a prominent director of photography to one of the most sought after directors around. He just directed his eighth episode of “The Walking Dead” and has directed shows such as “Friday Night Lights,” “Longmire,” “Sleepy Hollow,” “Queen of the South,” and” Aquarius.”
Christian Torpe and Amanda Segel are executive producers of “The Mist.” Bob Weinstein, Harvey Weinstein, and David Glasser are executive producers for TWC-Dimension Television with Megan Spanjian, Matthew Signer, and Keith Levine as producers.
“I’m honored to be working alongside Christian Torpe and all his incisive talent and all the focused people at Spike and Dimension,” said Boyd (pictured below).
Sharon Levy, Executive Vice President, Original Series Programming and Development; Ted Gold, Senior Vice President, Scripted Original Series; and Lauren Ruggiero, Vice President, Scripted Programming, will oversee the project for Spike with Vlad Wolynetz serving as co-executive producer.
