Here’s the First Look at “Mr. Mercedes” TV Series

One of the many Stephen King adaptations headed our way, we’ve just learned that AT&T Audience Network’s drama series “Mr. Mercedes, based on the same-named King novel that was published back in 2014, will be premiering this coming Summer. We’ve also gotten our hands on a few early images, giving us our first look at Harry Treadaway as Brady Hartsfield.

Check ’em out below, via the official “Mr. Mercedes” Facebook page!

Brendan Gleeson leads as Detective Bill Hodges, along with Harry Treadaway (Penny Dreadful) as Brady Hartsfield. Jharrel Jerome (Moonlight) is cast as Jerome Robinson, Scott Lawrence (Avatar) as Detective Peter Dixon, Robert Stanton (Mercury Rising) as Anthony “Robi” Frobisher, and Ann Cusack (Nightcrawler) as Olivia Trelawney, with Mary Louise-Parker (Weeds) as Janey Patterson, and Holland Taylor (The Truman Show) as Ida Silver. Kelly Lynch (Deborah Hartsfield), Justine Lupe (Holly Gibney) and Breeda Wool (Lou Linklatter) also star.

King himself will reportedly appear in a cameo role.

Based on Stephen King’s 2014 book, “Mr. Mercedes” follows demented killer Brady Hartsfield (Treadaway), who taunts a retired police detective Bill Hodges (Gleeson) with a series of lurid letters and emails, forcing the ex-cop to undertake a private, and potentially felonious, crusade to bring the killer to justice before he is able to strike again.

David E. Kelley wrote adaptation, produced by Sonar Entertainment. Jack Bender directs. Both executive produce along with Temple Hill Entertainment’s Marty Bowen and Wyck Godfrey.

    I thought Anton Yelchin was supposed to be in this. Damn. His CAReer has really gone down the driveway……I’m here all week folks!

    • Grimphantom

      That’s really not funny……..very bad taste making fun of someone who died where it could’ve happen to anyone.

      • Ocelot006 .

        Bad taste? Those are the best jokes out there.

      • Ocelot006 .

        Also most deaths can kind of happen to anyone so jokes about death are completely off limits to you?

        • Grimphantom

          If you’re a heartless asshole then yes.

          • Ocelot006 .

            You’d probably complain about the Three Stooges.

            ‘Hey my grandfather got hit with a hammer in the head and got brain damage!!!! This is not funny to laugh at someone else’s pain! This Three Stooges is absolutely offensive and in poor taste!’

    • Jada Maes

      Not only is the joke nonsensical, but you’re making fun of (by all accounts) a worthy young man being cut down in a stupid accident. Rude humor is one thing, being a complete asshole is another.

      • Ocelot006 .

        Why are you getting mad at me for being offended? That’s on you. You either laugh or you don’t laugh. There’s not much beyond that to do.

        • WoodsboroKiller

          wasn’t even a funny joke tho.

        • Jada Maes

          I’m not upset not mad, but I am offended. And I understand that you have a right to joke, but other people have a right to call you out on douchebag behavior. It was a stupid thing to say, and there’s no rationalizing it.

          • Ocelot006 .

            How is it a stupid thing to say? And why should anyone rationalize a joke beyond ‘I was telling a joke’?

          • Jada Maes

            Because generally speaking a young man being crushed to death by a car is not funny, no matter how much you try to explain how it is. And don’t give me the 3 Stooges bullshit because most people understand the difference between fiction and real life.

          • Ocelot006 .

            I never said a young man being crushed to death was funny. You seem to not understand the basic concept of a joke. They are not statements of sincerity.

          • Jada Maes

            Begone with you, dumdum.

          • Ocelot006 .

            Sorry you couldn’t handle that basic education of what humor is.

          • Jada Maes

            I’m sorry you’re not funny dumdum…

          • rabid_god

            You guys go and get a room.

        • Jada Maes

          And you know what? The more I think about it, the more your response pisses me off. Don’t you fucking say a stupid, senseless joke and then hide behind the hedges and claim it’s my fault I’m offended, you goddamn pussy. Grow a pair and have the self respect to own up to what you say, and don’t blame others for getting angry. You fucking waste of skin.

          • Ocelot006 .

            Telling me to grow a pair when you’re the one offended by a joke. Oh boy.

            Look at how upset you are at a joke. How is it not your fault you are upset?

          • Jada Maes

            I’m not upset about the joke. I’m saddened by someone who runs his mouth and then can’t back it up. Begone with you, dumdum.

          • Ocelot006 .

            There’s not single thing for me to back up. I made a joke. It’s as simple as that. If anything you may need to get your shit together and calm the fuck down. Rub your ears are some shot. You really think it’s appropriate to be that upset over a joke? What kind of state of mind are you in?

          • Jada Maes

            Your density is showing, dumdum.

          • Ocelot006 .

            If I offend you then don’t read my comments. This is why you being offended is your responsibility. You read the joke. My responsibility is for either making you laugh or not laugh. That’s it.

          • Jada Maes

            Shhhh, dumdum… You have failed miserably in your responsibility. You let me down. You let your country down. You let your mama down. Spare yourself, dumdum…

          • Ocelot006 .

            What it sounds like is you have a bigger crush on Anton Yelchin than his Jeep did.

          • Jada Maes

            Yes, I did actually. And you’re still failing, dumdum.

          • Ocelot006 .

            I would say inspiring others to make their own Anton Yelchin death jokes is far from failing. Sounds like a win.

          • Jada Maes

            Not really. You sadden me, dumdum. Like a gift basket covered in mold.

      • Kabukiman2337

        How is the joke nonsensical? Funny or not, it makes sense.

        And while it’s not a great joke by any means, it’s not a joke that should’ve caused you to lose your damn mind over.

        Read it. Be offended. Walk away.

        • Jada Maes

          It’s nonsensical because “straight down the driveway” is not a thing you hear. Don’t defend this shit, other dumdum

          • Kabukiman2337

            So you didn’t understand what he meant? I’m not defending anything, just saying you’re a dumdum if you didn’t get what he was saying, and if you *did* get it then you’re simply lying about it not making sense.

            Now just do everyone a favour and walk away.

            Or reply, I don’t care, because I’m a sane person who is walking away from your psychotic ranting. Have a nice day, dumdum.

          • Jada Maes

            It fascinates me that two people have now tried defending stupidity from a logical standpoint. Doesn’t wash. I’m not exactly chasing to continue this argument, because the world’s supply of assholes isn’t dangerously low. Peace out, dumdum.

    • Chris Napier

      Hey. How many Anton Yelchin’s does it take to pave a driveway? I mean, come on! Make sure to tip the waitress and try the veal.

    • Santos L Halper

      how many Anton Yelchins does it take to test drive a jeep? Obviously more than one!

  • Biscoito18

    Seeing Harry Treadaway just reminded me how I miss Penny Dreadful.

  • Cody Briscoe

    Okay there’s no way they can fuck this up.
