NEW YORK, July 17 (UPI) — Vikings actress Alyssa Sutherland has joined the cast of the small-screen adaptation of Stephen King‘s novella The Mist, Spike announced.
From TWC-Dimension Television, the 10-episode series goes into production this summer and is scheduled to air in 2017.
“The Mist tells the story of a foreboding mist that arrives in one small town ushering in a terrifying new reality for its residents, putting their humanity to the test. What will people do to survive when blinded by fear?” a press release said. “Sutherland will play Eve Cunningham, a wife and mother who fights to protect her teenage daughter from unknown dangers lurking both inside and outside the mist while facing down her past.”
The ensemble also includes Frances Conroy, who was previously announced as playing Nathalie, “a modern-day, ecological martyr.”
The book was adapted as a 2007 movie, as well.
