Marc Bernardin, writer and co-host of Fatman On Batman revealed that he is part of the writers’ room of Castle Rock. Castle Rock is the J.J. Abrams produced Stephen King anthology TV series, based in King’s fictional city of Castle Rock, Maine. The same Castle Rock where most of his novels take place. The possibilities are endless.
Crossover potential is high, but Marc reiterated that they can only use stories in which they currently have the rights. Bernardin not only confirmed his involvement, but other details of the HULU series. For instance the series will be shot in a block shoot similar to a motion picture, there will be 10 episodes, King is overseeing the series, and the showrunners are Sam Shaw and Dustin Thomason of the WGN Manhattan TV series.
