Adapting a popular book is a difficult task, but if there's one novelist whose work fits perfectly on the small screen, it's Stephen King. Another of King's series of novels is about to debut on the AT&T Audience Network on August 9th.

Series director Jack Bender - along with some of the cast - sat down with SYFY WIRE, to talk about how the creative team worked hard to maintain King's creative vision in their adaptation.

"As brilliant as David Kelley's adaptation is," said Bender. "we stuck to the architecture of the first book."

"Stephen King is a great writer of characters," added Holland Taylor, who stars as Ida. "Such that I defy you to put this book down if you get to page three."
