E1 Entertainment Creates a Haven for Stephen King
Stephen King has had a long and rocky road on the big and small screens. The sad truth is his work just may be a little too complex for adaptation. That certainly hasn't stopped anyone from trying though. Enter E1 Entertainment and its newest hour-long TV project, Stephen King's "Haven".
Variety reports that E1 Entertainment and the team who turned King's The Dead Zone into a series for USA Network are at it again for "Haven". Scott Shepherd will serve as showrunner and executive produce along with Lloyd Segan and Shawn Piller.
The project centers on a spooky town in Maine (what else?) where cursed folk live normal lives cut off from the rest of the world. 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.
E1 has already committed to producing 13 episodes of "Haven" and is in advanced talks with several European broadcast partners to sign on and help finance the show. After securing an international partner, the company will turn its attention to finding U.S. and Canadian broadcasters.
Look for more on this one soon.
