A 10-episode TV series based on Stephen King’s novel “Mr. Mercedes” is being shot in Charleston.
The book, which won the Edgar Award for best novel, is the first in a trilogy about a serial killer who toys with a retired police detective.
The show will be directed and co-produced by Jack Bender, who previously teamed up with King for CBS’s “Under the Dome.” It will premier in 2018 on DirecTV and AT&T Uverse.
The Charleston City Paper reported that crews have been filming in several locations this week.
Never miss a local story.
The show began filming in January and will be in production in the Charleston area “for quite some time,” according to a casting call. “Mr. Mercedes” is also seeking extras.
