CAS­TLE ROCK

STAR­RING: Bill Skars­gård

WHO - - The List -

In a mys­tery-based series, can there be any bet­ter com­bi­na­tion than J.J. Abrams (who serves as ex­ec­u­tive pro­ducer) and Stephen King (on whose works Cas­tle Rock is based)? Not an adap­ta­tion of a spe­cific story, in­stead, this 10-part sea­son – a sec­ond is on its way – is in­spired by King’s vast cat­a­logue of writ­ing and fea­tures some char­ac­ters who have ap­peared in other works. The mys­tery cen­tres around “The Kid” (Skars­gård), who is dis­cov­ered in a dis­used part of Shaw­shank Prison, where he’s been held cap­tive for 27 years. But it’s just one of many in­trigues in a sprawl­ing epic set in one of King’s favourite fic­tional towns, Cas­tle Rock, Maine. (Starts Mon., Nov. 12, 8.30pm; Fox Show­case)
