First Trailer For ‘Mr. Mercedes Pulls In

Some of Stephen Kings best work of the last few years has been his Bill Hodges trilogy of which Mr. Mercedes was the first tome in the collection. Not a straight up horror story but certainly hardcore enough to make his bloodthirsty brood happy – the story was ripe for an adaptation and AT&T’s Audience Network was more than happy to oblige.

Premiering on Aug. 9th – the channel has supplied the following synopsis:

“From Executive Producers Stephen King, David E. Kelley and Jack Bender comes the story of a demented serial killer who taunts a retired police detective with a series of lurid letters and emails. This forces the ex-cop to undertake a private, and potentially felonious, crusade to bring the killer to justice before he can strike again.”

Along with that synopsis came our first look via a trailer – settle in and click play.

So – since this is on the Audience Network – you need to either have U-Verse or DirecTV to be able to see it.   I’m sure there are a number of you out there who do so – make sure to let me know what you think.   Hopefully it will get sent to Netflix or HULU or at the very least – a home video release.

Brendan Gleeson and Harry Treadaway star.

Season one will consist of 10 episodes.   Remember the date – Aug. 9th!
