Another adaptation of a Stephen King series is on the way to a streaming service. This time it is his classic novel The Stand that CBS All Access has greenlit for a 10-episode series, according to CBS.
The stand is undoubtedly one of the king's best-known novels, a bursting post-apocalyptic work that is immersed in a plague that dries out most of the world's population. The novel follows the collapse of society and the efforts of a small band of survivors seeking to establish a new community led by a 108-year-old who is performing "good" and facing a rival faction led by a malicious leader.
This is not the first time that the novel has been adapted: ABC launched an eight-hour miniseries way back in 1
There has been a wealth of King adjustments in recent years, from 2017 It (and its successor It: Chapter 2 comes later this year) and The Dark Tower last year's 1922 and this year's Pet Sematary not to mention a number of television adaptations like Under the Dome, Mr. Mercedes Hulu's 11.22.63 and its King-Derived Exhibition, Castle Rock . The project adds to the CBS & # 39; growing project list, ranging from the upcoming Twilight Zone restart with Jordan Peele and a slate of new Star Trek projects that include Patrick Stewart's return as Jean Luc Picard. CBS did not announce a release date or cast for The Stand .
