#SDCC17: See the Mr. Mercedes Comic-Con Panel in Full

Mr Mercedes

We’re pretty excited to check out “Mr. Mercedes” when it debuts next month, and if you are too, you’ll want to watch the show’s July 23rd San Diego Comic-Con panel, which we have for you in its entirety right here!  Join director/exec producer Jack Bender and stars Harry Treadaway, Kelly Lynch, Holland Taylor, Jharrel Jerome, and Breeda Wool as they discuss this new original series and what we can expect.

Starring Brendan Gleeson and Harry Treadaway, the 10-episode “Mr. Mercedes” is based off the Stephen King novel of the same name. The series is written, directed, and produced by the team of Jack Bender, David E. Kelley, and King himself.

Gleeson stars as Bill Hodges, a detective way past his prime who gets his groove back when the psychopathic killer from a high-profile cold case re-emerges to mock him. Hodges is still bothered by the one case he couldn’t solve, a tragedy where innocents waiting to get into a job fair were maimed and murdered by a man in a clown mask who mowed them down in a stolen Mercedes. But that life is just a memory, and most of Hodges’ now sedentary existence revolves around beer and high-calorie food.

Old wounds are reopened when Hodges begins receiving strange letters, videos, and emails with a wicked smiley face from the “Mercedes Killer,” aka Brady Hartsfield (Treadaway), a computer store clerk who has an incestuous relationship with his mother (Kelly Lynch) and holds down a second job as an ice cream vendor to keep an eye on Hodges and his associates.

The show also co-stars Jharrel Jerome, Mary-Louise Parker, Justine Lupe, Scott Lawrence, Ann Cusack, Robert Stanton, Holland Taylor, and Breeda Wool. Look for it on August 9th on Audience Network, available to DirecTV subscribers.
