SANTA MONICA and BURBANK, Calif. (February 21, 2017) - Hulu is taking viewers into the chilling world of acclaimed, best-selling author Stephen King in the new Hulu Original drama series Castle Rock, from J.J. Abrams' Bad Robot Productions, Warner Bros. Stephen King and JJ Abrams took to social media on Friday to preview their upcoming project for Hulu titled Castle Rock. Hulu has ordered a 10-episode first season of what it refers to as an "on-going series".

The Hollywood Reporter speculates that Castle Rock will be an anthology series where "each season will follow a different set of character and story lines while interjecting themes and specific characters from previous seasons", like how Fargo mines the Coen Brothers' cinematic universe.

Castle Rock is featured in "The Dead Zone", "Cujo", "The Body"- on which the film "Stand By Me" was based - and other novels and short stories, and is portrayed as a kind of all-American town unsettled by King's supernatural events. The series will stream exclusively in the US on Hulu and Warner Bros. Abrams, Ben Stephenson, and Liz Glotzer will also serve as executive producers. But if there's anything King is great at, it is creating an overarching, interconnected world, something that he did with great skill in The Dark Tower series, which was able to connect nearly all of his works into one grand meta-narrative that even included his own life. Worldwide Television Distribution handling distribution global distribution. Abrams through his company Bad Robot.
