Stephen King Returning to TV with Haven


Stephen King has signed on to turn his novella “The Colorado Kid” into an hourlong series for indie studio E1 Entertainment, reports Variety.

Titled “Haven,” the project centers on a spooky town in Maine where cursed folk live normal lives in exile. 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.

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 with Lloyd Segan and Shawn Piller. Sam Ernst and Jim Dunn are writing the pilot and will also serve as executive producers. E1’s John Morayniss and Noreen Halpern are executive producers as well.

E1 has already committed to producing 13 episodes of “Haven.”
