It was first published in 1980 and was adapted into a feature film in 2007. The Mist is Spike’s first pilot order since the network returned to offering scripted programming. Spike previously had two other scripted series planned, Red Mars and Harvest, but both projects were halted in pre-production. stephen-king-the-mist-tv-show Stephen King is no stranger to having his work translated onto television.
