Ahead of The Mist’s debut later this month, Spike TV has dropped a new video featurette taking us behind-the-scenes of the hotly anticipated adaptation of the Stephen King horror novella.

The 10-episode series hails from writer and showrunner Christian Torpe (Rita) who explains how they went about reimagining King’s novella (which was adapted for the big screen by Frank Darabont in 2007) for television. What’s more, there’s some new footage to sink our teeth into, as well as interviews with some of the actors.

Premiering June 22 at 10 p.m. on Spike, the serialized drama stars Morgan Spector, Alyssa Sutherland, Gus Birney, Danica Curcic, Okezie Morro, Dan Butler, Darren Pettie, Isiah Whitlock, Jr., Russell Posner, Luke Cosgrove and Frances Conroy. Check out the featurette below, and let us know what you think:

When the residents of Bridgeville, Maine find themselves engulfed by a foreboding mist containing a myriad of inexplicable and bizarre threats, their humanity is put to the test in The Mist.

Based on a story by Stephen King, Spike’s The Mist has been re-imagined for television by Executive Producer and Writer Christian Torpe and produced by TWC-Dimension Television.  The story centers around a small town family that is torn apart by a brutal crime.  As they deal with the fallout an eerie mist rolls in, suddenly cutting them off from the rest of the world, and in some cases, each other.  Family, friends and adversaries become strange bedfellows, battling the mysterious mist and its threats, fighting to maintain morality and sanity as the rules of society break down.
