...the bestselling author’s crime thriller Mr. Mercedes is now on its way to the small screen. David E. Kelley, the TV stalwart known for shows such as Ally McBeal and The Practice, will be adapting the hard-boiled novel as a limited series. Will this project do for ice cream trucks what Psycho did for showers?
.....
Though this is being pegged as a limited series, the Mr. Mercedes novel is getting a sequel from King called Finders Keepers in May, with an as-yet-untitled third novel coming later. If success hits, you can bet your umbrella that we’ll be seeing Kelley crafting a couple more limited series in the years to come.

Ann (annrumsey) | 14609 comments and from four months ago: 11/23/63 is being worked on as a nine hour limited series for Hulu. That sounds very interesting. looks like no recent news on it though.

Carol/Bonadie (bonadie) | 8053 comments I hope they do make it a limited episode series, and not drag it on like they did with Under the Dome. I will definitely watch, now am interested in the casting.

The story makes the point that some of the scenes if filmed as is would be difficult to watch, and atypical for network television.
