Hulu's Stephen King Series 'Castle Rock' Gets Premiere Date, New Teaser”

Based on the works of King and adapted for television by Sam Shaw & Dustin Thomason (Manhattan), Castle Rock is set in a small ME town that prominently plays into a number of King's works.

Are you looking forward to the series? "Naturally he finds a mystery there, and it appears to feature a number of iconic elements from King's stories ranging from "Rita Hayworth and Shawshank Redemption" to 'It'".

Hulu hopes to capitalize on the genre craze with Castle Rock, a new drama from J.J. Abrams and based on the work of prolific author Stephen King.

Castle Rock premieres on Hulu Wednesday, July 25.

Something wicked resides in Castle Rock - and it isn't just the corpse, the woman holding a bloody knife, the masked figure, or the alligator. "I fear for this place", he says at the start, and from the looks of things, he has a good reason.

Plus, a sneak peek at a few upcoming King adaptations for television. Sissy Spacek played the titular role in the 1976 horror film Carrie, while Chozen Jacobs and Bill Skarsgard starred in last summer's It remake, with the latter playing the villainous Pennywise the Clown.

The fictional ME town of Castle Rock has figured prominently in King's literary career: Cujo, The Dark Half, IT and Needful Things, as well as novella The Body and numerous short stories such as Rita Hayworth and The Shawshank Redemption are either set there or contain references to Castle Rock. Other cast members include Melanie Lynskey, Jane Levy, Scott Glenn, and Frank L. Ridley.

The original story combines the storytelling of King's best-loved works, played out on a few square miles of ME woodland.
