Stephen King Tale Ayana Heading to TV from Universal
Yep, another Stephen King story is heading to the small screen, and at this rate it won't be long before half the shows on TV are based on King tales! Read on for the early word on "Ayana" from Universal TV.
Set in the world of miracles, “Ayana” (which appeared in King's Just After Sunset compilation) features complex and powerful characters who are touched with just a hint of unexplained magic that triggers profound change in their lives.
Per Variety, Chris Sparling (Buried) is on board to pen the pilot. Jordan Kerner (the Mighty Ducks and Smurfs franchises) will serve as executive producer with Ben Haber (who worked with Kerner on the Smurfs films) producing.
NBC is currently considering the project, but should they pass, Universal TV will shop the pilot to other networks.
Short Story Synopsis:
A man's father is dying of pancreatic cancer. A strange little girl named Ayana arrives at his hospital room and gives him a kiss--but not a "kiss of death." Instead, his father miraculously recovers. The narrator must repay this miracle, though, and over the years is called upon to do so.
We'll have more as it comes!
