TV: SyFy Scores Stephen King’s ‘The Colorado Kid’ Adaptation

Syfy has signed on to pick up 13 episodes of “Haven,” a thriller based on Stephen King’s novella “The Colorado Kid” (first announced here last week). “Haven” 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. Scott Shepherd is the showrunner and will exec produce with Lloyd Segan and Shawn Piller. Shepherd, Segan and Piller were all exec producers on “The Dead Zone,” which ran for six seasons and went off the air in 2008. Sam Ernst and Jim Dunn are writing the pilot and will also serve as exec producers
