Coming to a television near you… The creepy tale ‘The Mist’, was first published in Stephen King’s 1980 horror anthology Dark Forces.
From The Mist website:
“Based on a story by Stephen King, Spike’s “The Mist” centres around a small town family that is torn apart by a brutal crime. As they deal with the fallout an eerie mist rolls in, suddenly cutting them off from the rest of the world, and in some cases, each other. Family, friends and adversaries become strange bedfellows, battling the mysterious mist and its threats, fighting to maintain morality and sanity as the rules of society break down.”
The show premieres on June 22nd on the TV network ‘Spike’ (owned by Viacom), and will star Alyssa Sutherland, Morgan Spector and Frances Conroy.

The dysfunctional family consists of Peter (father), Lois (mother), Chris (son), Meg (daughter), Stewie (baby son), and Brian their anthropomorphised dog.The show is known for its non-sequitur cutaway scenes, and musical numbers; each episode is a whirlwind of popular culture references, borderline offensive (and at times absolutely offensive) jokes, and toilet humour. It is often subversive, at times intelligent, but mostly puerile nonsense (which is totally fine- no judgement!)

Forster is known for his commentary on social class and hypocrisies, and examining such with wit and intelligence. Howards End in particular places a magnifying glass on three families of varying classes at the beginning of the 20th century. In the novel the half-German Schlegel sisters look to help the impoverished Basts while also working with the rich Wilcoxes to rid them of their ingrained prejudices.
