A&E Network has launched an online narrative prequel, “Dark Score Stories,” to Stephen King’s Bag of Bones a four-hour miniseries based on The New York Times #1 bestselling novel, and featuring Pierce Brosnan’s return to television.

DarkScoreStories.com is a visual and interactive exploration of the setting and characters of “Bag of Bones” through a series of eerie, animated images, striking black-and-white still photographs and audio interviews.

In “Dark Score Stories,” characters from the upcoming miniseries (including those played by stars Pierce Brosnan, Annabeth Gish and Melissa George) come to life in seven striking, photojournalistic portraits and oral histories. Each vignette will provide a glimpse into every day life at Dark Score Lake, “Bag of Bones” setting, and is introduced with an animated still – a unique visual technique with subtle, mysterious movements hinting at the dark secrets bubbling beneath the surface of each tale. Visitors to the site will find a series of secrets hidden in the rich detail of each image, recognizable especially to Stephen King fans.

The haunting photography is by award-winning Danish photojournalist Joachim Ladefoged, whose work has previously appeared in The New York Times Magazine, Newsweek and TIME. ‘Dark Score Stories’ was created for A&E by Campfire, a marketing agency founded by the creators of The Blair Witch Project.

Part one of Stephen King’s Bag of Bones airs on December 11.
