From creators Sam Shaw and Dustin Thomason, the Castle Rock TV show is based on the written works of Stephen King. The psychological horror series is set in the "Stephen King multiverse" and unfolds within a few square miles of the Maine woodland.

Here’s what we know so far about the anthology series set in the most famous fictional town in the Stephen King universe.
Castle Rock, Maine, Is Familiarly Creepy Territory for a Stephen King Project
It shouldn’t come as a surprise that another chilling mystery has reared its foreboding head in the fictional town of Castle Rock, Maine, as the ill-fated spot has played the central setting in a number of King tales like “Cujo,” “The Body,” and “Needful Things.” Because “Castle Rock” is an important town in the Stephen King library, co-creator and executive
On Tuesday, Hulu dropped the official trailer for “Castle Rock,” its upcoming psychological-horror series from King and J.J. Abrams and starring Bill Skarsgård in a role that might make you forget all about how much he freaked you out as Pennywise in “It.”
In the 2-minute, 25-second video, we’re introduced to the titular town that has been the setting of so many haunting tales in the King universe and immediately meet Skarsgård’s latest spooky persona: an inmate at Shawshank who just shows up out of the blue. As soon as this guy shows up, a series of chilling events begin to occur, as it’s pointed out to us “there’s something wrong with that kid.”

Note: With the film finally hitting DVD, here’s a repost of our review of Killing Gunther from its VOD release back in March(!)
With a documentary crew in tow to record the process, hit man Blake (Taran Killam) leads a group of skilled assassins who have had enough of the world’s number one hitman Gunther (Arnold Schwarzenegger) and decide to do what they do best, kill him! Despite the combined talents of the team however, completing the kills turns out to be a harder than they had expected, as their plans turn into a series of bungled encounters with Gunther always seeming to be one step ahead.
Killing Gunther is a clever dark comedy from writer-director Taran Killam, which
The pilot is titled “Reprisal.” It is described as a hyper-kinetic revenge tale following a relentless femme fatale who, after being left for dead, leads a vengeful campaign against a bombastic gang of gearheads.
Littlefield will executive produce along with Barry Jossen, Evp of A+E Studios. Josh Corbin is the writer on the project and will also serve as co-executive producer. Jonathan Van Tulleken will direct. The pilot is produced by A+E Studios in association with The Littlefield Company.

Last week, it was announced that Hulu was nearing a pilot order for the comedy series “Kansas City,
At the close of Season 8, Fiona confronted Ford about the state of their romance, after which he told her that he doesn’t fall in love like a teenager. When that happens, “you actually take space and time to get to know somebody for who they are, as opposed to what they represent for you,” showrunner Nancy Pimental told TVLine. “So it’s really good for her.
John Slattery, Allison Tolman, and Rafe Spall will all star in the single-camera series. It is set in a world where the titular city has been divided by a wall to separate the conservative West K.C. from the liberal East K.C.
Spall will play Ben Graham, a citizen of East K.C., wearily has resigned himself to only being able to see his 15-year-old daughter for a few hours each day. That is, until he’s approached about being a spy.
Slattery stars as Ellis Brookmeyer is Ben’s ex-father-in-law, the last mayor of unified Kansas City and now the leading funder of West K.C.’s secret police. He will stop at nothing to bring East K.C. to its knees.

Set in Kansas City, the single-camera project, which has yet to get a formal pilot greenlight but already is in production, was written by Zev Borow (Lethal Weapon), with Rhys Thomas (Comrade Detective) set to direct.
Kansas City is set in a future where the city is separated by a wall between liberals and conservatives. Absurd misinformation and enmity rage as the two cities aim to undermine each other. In West Kansas City, political heavyweight Ellis Brookmeyer (Slattery) holds sway. His former son-in-law, Ben Graham (Spall), lives in East K.C. and yearns to be reunited with his daughter Clarissa (who lives in West K.C.). To accomplish this Ben gets involved with an East K.
The streamer is near a deal for the comedy pilot Kansas City and, ahead of its official pickup, has locked in John Slattery, Allison Tolman and Rafe Spall to star.
From writer Zev Borow (Chuck), Kansas City is set in a modern U.S. riven by cultural and political divisions, so much so that it has chosen to split itself into two nations. One Missouri city, however, was too evenly divided to align with either side, so Kansas City split in two: the liberal East K.C. and conservative ...

“After he watched the first episode, we were really excited because he said that for the first time in a very long time, he called out to his TV to tell someone to not go where they were about to go,” Thomason said during a panel discussion for his Hulu series “Castle Rock” Friday afternoon.
“Yeah, especially because he’s the guy who made a career out of sending people into places that they should not go,” Shaw said.
Making their first public appearance to discuss the Hulu anthology, co-developers and executive producers Shaw and Thomason debuted an exclusive four-minute clip at the Atx Television Festival in Austin, TX, and then spoke for 45 minutes about how the mysterious anthology show came to be. But without the friendship between another executive producer and King,
“Stephen was sort of, for us, Charlie in ‘Charlie’s Angels.’ He was sort of the crucial figure who loomed from afar,” Sam Shaw said. “Castle Rock is an important town in the Stephen King library, so it was crucial — we needed and wanted to have his blessing.”
A decade ago Shaw and Dustin Thomason kicked around the idea of a show set in a “kind of generic, off-brand Castle Rock,” Shaw continued. Both men are “reformed fiction writers and were fans of Stephen King and fans of the geography in Stephen King’s” universe. They wanted to explore the kinds of people who would stay in a town after experiencing demonic dogs and serial murderers, but they never thought they’d get the rights to his works.
Thomason shard a cheeky anecdote on how Tolman pretty much cast herself. “When Melanie was cast, there was a casting announcement” which Tolman tweeted at Melanie and I’d love to play yur. The weird. thing that we knew the cgarcter had a sisters abd as soon as she said that we thought Allison Tolman would be the perfect siste.r
