June 7th, 2017 by Marc Comments

Oh, man, we’re so excited for this!

The Hodges Trilogy is one of Stephen King’s greatest works in recent years, made of Mr Mercedes, Finders Keepers and End of Watch, the series of books follows retired police man Bill Hodges as he comes out of retirement to find a killer that got away and it becomes a deadly cat-and-mouse game that starts pretty small and soon becomes a epic tale of horror and thrills.

Check out the first look at the series by way of a making of spot. And, if it wasn’t King we’d be watching because Brendan Gleeson is a legend.

A small screen adaptation of Stephen King’s 2014 novel “Mr. Mercedes” is headed to the AT&T Audience Network on Wednesday, August 9th, and we’ve got a sneak peek today via a behind the scenes featurette. It offers up the very first footage from the series, along with some chatter from King himself.

Brendan Gleeson leads as Detective Bill Hodges, along with Harry Treadaway (Penny Dreadful) as Brady Hartsfield. Jharrel Jerome (Moonlight) is cast as Jerome Robinson, Scott Lawrence (Avatar) as Detective Peter Dixon, Robert Stanton (Mercury Rising) as Anthony “Robi” Frobisher, and Ann Cusack (Nightcrawler) as Olivia Trelawney, with Mary Louise-Parker (Weeds) as Janey Patterson, and Holland Taylor (The Truman Show) as Ida Silver. Kelly Lynch (Deborah Hartsfield), Justine Lupe (Holly Gibney) and Breeda Wool (Lou Linklatter) also star. King himself will appear in a cameo role.

Based on Stephen King’s 2014 book, “Mr. Mercedes” follows demented killer Brady Hartsfield (Treadaway), who taunts a retired police detective Bill Hodges (Gleeson) with a series of lurid letters and emails, forcing the ex-cop to undertake a private, and potentially felonious, crusade to bring the killer to justice before he is able to strike again.

David E. Kelley wrote adaptation, produced by Sonar Entertainment. Jack Bender directs. Both executive produce along with Temple Hill Entertainment’s Marty Bowen and Wyck Godfrey.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
