Mr. Mercedes Taunts in First Teaser for Stephen King Adap

Posted on: June 8th, 2017

With AT&T Audience Network bringing Stephen King’s 2014 novel Mr. Mercedes to the small screen this summer, the first official teaser has been released. In the brief clip, Brendan Gleeson (28 Days Later…, Gangs of New York) gets paranoid as he inspects a gift sent to him by a serial killer.

Gleeson stars as Detective Hodges, a retired cop who is taunted by a series of obscene and lurid letters and emails from deranged murderer Brady Hartsfield (Penny Dreadful’s Harry Treadaway). Taking matters into his own hands, Hodges embarks on a lone, potentially felonious crusade to bring the psycho to justice before he can strike again.

Co-starring are Kelly Lynch as Deborah Hartsfield, Justine Lupe as Holly Gibney and Breeda Wool as Lou Linklatter. Newcomer Jharrel Jerome plays Jerome Robinson, with Avatar’s Scott Lawrence as Detective Peter Dixon, Mercury Rising’s Robert Stanton as Anthony “Robi” Frobisher and Ann Cusack (Nightcrawler, Stigmata) as Olivia Trelawney. Word is that King himself will appear in a cameo role.

David E. Kelley wrote the 10-episode series, which Jack Bender directs. Both also executive produce along with Temple Hill Entertainment’s Marty Bowen and Wyck Godfrey.

Mr. Mercedes premieres on AT&T on Wednesday, August 9th.
