“Mr. Mercedes” Trailer Wants You to Choose a Side

An alcoholic ex-detective (Brendan Gleeson) finds new life when a mass murderer resurfaces in the small screen adaptation of Stephen King’s 2014 novel “Mr. Mercedes”, which is headed to the AT&T Audience Network on Wednesday, August 9th. Said to be in the vein of “Mr. Robot” with elements of horror, the series follows an ex-detective (Brendan Gleeson) who is pulled out of retirement to hunt down a mass murderer from years prior.

Brendan Gleeson 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 appear in a cameo role.

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

    Actually looks interesting, no harm in trying it out.

      If it’s ANYTHING like the book, you won’t be sorry. So jealous.

    Can’t be helped but I would have loved to see Anton Yelchin in this. I like Treadaway but after seeing him as Frankenstein (Dr. Frankenstein, not the Monster) I think he’s too overtly creepy.

    Let’s Anton Yechin’s method acting of getting hit by an actual car added some quality.

    So we have to have Direct TV or can’t watch? Some bs.
