Castle Rock – Melanie Lynskey to star in the Stephen King shared universe TV show


Castle Rock is a new Hulu original anthology show based on the works of Stephen King.

A psychological-horror series set in the Stephen King multiverse, Castle Rock combines the mythological scale and intimate character storytelling of King’s best-loved works, weaving an epic saga of darkness and light, played out on a few square miles of Maine woodland. The fictional Maine town of Castle Rock has figured prominently in King’s literary career: Cujo, The Dark Half, IT and Needful Things, as well as novella The Body and numerous short stories such as Rita Hayworth and Shawshank Redemption are either set there or contain references to Castle Rock. As a series, Castle Rock aims to explores various themes and worlds, uniting the entire King canon, while brushing up against some of his most iconic and beloved stories.

Each season will follow a different set of characters and storylines, but will reference or have links to events and characters from previous seasons. I really like the sound of that.

TV Line had the news that Melanie Lynsky (Two and a Half Men, Togetherness, Up In The Air, Heavenly Creatures), will play the lead character of Molly Strand, a woman with a rare medical condition who’s barely scraping by as a real estate agent in a town where every third property is the site of someone’s worst nightmare.

The cast also includes Andre Holland, Jane Levy, and Sissy Spacek. The latter is no strange to the world of Stephen King as she played the lead in 1976’s Carrie.

The limited series is being written and will be executive produced by Sam Shaw (Manhattan).
