New Stephen King TV Series In Development

With both Haven and Under The Dome still successful in the States, Stephen King, once lord of all horror movies, is rather hot property on television right now. ABC has just announced another TV series based on his work.

The newly announced Grand Central will be based on the short story The New York Times At Special Bargain Rates, which was published in The Magazine of Fantasy & Science Fiction in 2008.

The story concerns a woman who receives a phone call from her husband who died in a plane crash two days previously. He warns her of impending tragedy and saves her life. It's not yet clear how the show, which will go straight to series, will spin that into a full show, but the synopsis calls it "a character-driven procedural with a supernatural twist".

Grand Central will broadcast in the US in the summer of 2014. Shawn Piller, Lloyd Segan and Scott Shepherd, who are all producers on Haven, will produce.
