TV: A&E Scores Stephen King Adaptation ‘Bag of Bones’

A&E has picked up the Pierce Brosnan-Stephen King four-part miniseries “Bag of Bones,” says THR. The four-hour miniseries, based off King’s New York Times bestselling novel, will air over two nights in the fourth quarter of 2011. Anabeth Gish will also star.

Mick Garris – who helmed tele adaptations of King’s “Quicksilver Highway,” “The Stand” and “The Shining” – will direct and Matt Venne wrote the script. It will be filmed in Nova Scotia, Canada. Production begins next month.

Brosnan plays a man who is unable to stop grieving for his wife, who died suddenly. After returning to the lakeside retreat they shared, he inadvertently gets involved in a local custody battle – while having nightmares about his dead wife.

It’s produced by Sony Pictures Television for A&E.
