J.J. Abrams just announced (in his usual cryptic way) a new series he is producing called Castle Rock. If you’re a Stephen King, you what that is: the fictional town in Maine where many of his stories take place, including The Dead Zone, The Body (Stand By Me), Needful Things, and more.

It looks like 2017 is going to be a great year to be a Stephen King fan, with The Mist series coming to Spike, the feature film adaptations of IT and The Dark Tower, and of course we can likely expect numerous nods to Stephen King again throughout the second season of Stranger Things.
Last year J.J. Abrams produced 11.22.63 for Hulu, based on the Stephen King novel, which turned out great. I’d say Castle Rock definitely has potential.
