Published

As Stephen King fever continues to sweep through the entertainment industry, it should probably come as little surprise that another King project is in the works.

Like “Mr. Mercedes” before it, King’s novel “Joyland” is next headed to the small screen, with THR reporting that Freeform is currently developing the TV adaptation.

Joyland tells the story of Devin, a college student who takes a summer job at an amusement park in a North Carolina tourist town, confronts the legacy of a vicious murder, the fate of a dying child and the way both will change his life forever.”

Chris Peña (Jane the Virgin) and Cyrus Nowrasteh (The Stoning of Soraya M.) will write the pilot and produce. Bill Haber’s Ostar Productions (Valor) will exec produce.

Writer in the horror community since 2008. Owns Eli Roth's prop corpse from Piranha 3D. Has three awesome cats. Still plays with toys.
