It's Stephen King-a-palooza right now! In addition to The Dark Tower and It hitting theaters over the next few months, Spike has a TV series based on The Mist, Netflix is just about done with a Gerald's Game feature, Mr. Mercedes is getting adapted for Audience Network, and Hulu is about to bring us Castle Rock.

Castle Rock is like no other Stephen King property, because it is based on no one Stephen King property. Instead, it is an original story set in "the Stephen King Multiverse." Meaning they have the rights to a dozen different King properties, and can pick and choose who or what they populate the TV show with.

In the straight-from-Comic-Con video below, staff writer Marc Bernardin tells us all about the show, which stars Andre Holland and Sissy Spacek (maybe reprising her role as Carrie White?). And because this is the Con, we couldn't forget to ask Bernardin about upcoming issues of his comic book, Genius.
