Julianne Moore to star in TV adaptation of Stephen King’s Lisey’s Story and King will write the series


Apple has won a bidding war for Stephen King’s 2006 Lisey’s Story. They have given it an eight-episode, straight-to-series order, according to THR.

Julianne Moore will star as Lisey in the show. Here is the book synopsis:

Every marriage has two hearts, one light and one dark.

Lisey knew it when she first fell for Scott. And now he’s dead, she knows it for sure.

Lisey was the light to Scott Landon’s dark for twenty-five years. As his wife, only she saw the truth behind the public face of the famous author – that he was a haunted man whose bestselling novels were based on a terrifying reality.

Now Scott has gone, Lisey wants to lock herself away with her memories. But the fans have other ideas. And when the sinister threats begin, Lisey realises that, just as Scott depended on her strength – her light – to live, so she will have to draw on his darkness to survive.

Even better is the fact that Stephen King is writing all eight episodes for Apple TV+. The show is being produced by J.J. Abrams and his Bad Robot Productions.

Lisey’s Story is the latest collaboration for Abrams and King, who previously teamed on the Hulu limited series 11.22.63 and the anthology Castle Rock.
