SyFy Developing Stephen King's Novella to TV Series


SyFy said 'Haven' is the first step in their plan to invest in more top quality content which provides 'compelling entertainment' for their viewers around the world.

One of Stephen King's novellas will be transformed into a television series by SyFy. The cable channel has ordered 13 episodes to be made based on King's "The Colorado Kid", Mark Stern, Executive Vice President, Original Content for SyFy announced on Monday, November 30. The series will be titled "Haven" and its production will be in motion early 2010.

"Haven", according to the press release, is "full of complex, yet identifiable, characters and compelling supernatural situations." The pilot is written by Sam Ernst and Jim Dunn aka "Shrek the Third" scribes. "Sam and Jim wrote a great pilot, and we can't wait to see Scott [Shepherd], Lloyd [Segan], and Shawn [Piller] join them in bringing this town to life as a series," Stern said in making the announcement.

Deep in the heart of Maine, Haven is a town where people with supernatural abilities have migrated for generations because it mutes their powers, allowing them to lead normal lives. At least, until recently. When hot-shot FBI agent Audrey Parker is called to Haven to solve the murder of a local ex-con, she catches the killer but uncovers a much deeper mystery about this town.

A joint venture between SyFy and E1 Entertainment, "Haven" is scheduled to premiere sometime in 2010. No actors or actresses have been attached to the show.
