Stephen King's 2014 intense crime thriller, Mr. Mercedes, is being adapted into a new TV series on the AT&T Audience Network, and we've grabbed a few early images of the chilling serial killer drama.

It's adapted by small-screen veteran David E. Kelly (Ally McBeal, Boston Legal) and stars Penny Dreadful's Harry Treadaway as a deranged mass murderer who entices an ex-detective played by Brendan Gleeson (Harry Potter Saga) into playing a crazy game of homicidal cat and mouse. This 10-episode hardboiled drama debuts later this summer and will be directed by Jack Bender (Lost, Under The Dome). King also announced last month that he will put in a cameo sometime in the series.

Here's the official synopsis:

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.

Have a peek at these initial images in the gallery below, and inform us as to whether or not this King adaptation might be worth a watch.
