THE SHINING TV Series Coming to HBO Max From J.J. Abrams!

HBO Max and J.J. Abrams’ Bad Robot are teaming for a series inspired by Stephen King’s The Shining called Overlook. The series is described as a horror-thriller series that explores the untold stories of the Overlook Hotel, the most famous haunted hotel in American fiction.

Variety reports that the one-hour drama will be executive produced by J.J. Abrams and Ben Stephenson. Rachel Rusch Rich will serve as a co-executive producer. Warner Bros. Television will produce, while Warner Bros. International Television Distribution will be the global distributor.

The show is one the first television projects set up at HBO Max under Abrams’ and Bad Robot’s mega-deal with WarnerMedia that was unveiled in September 2019. The project reunites Bad Robot, King and WBTV, who previously collaborated on Hulu’s Castle Rock.

Kevin Reilly, chief content officer of HBO Max said: “What an amazing start to our association with the wildly imaginative Bad Robot team under J.J. and Katie [McGrath]. What could be better than an original J.J. idea and then Warner Bros. letting them loose on iconic I.P. from Stephen King and the DC Universe and to provide more must-have programming on HBO Max.”
