‘Mr. Mercedes’: New Stephen King offering hits cable

Millennials screwing with baby boomers. That’s one way to sum up the mouse & cat game in Stephen King’s new television series.

The master of horror is executive producing Mr. Mercedes, the new thriller set to air on AT&T’s Audience network, along with showrunner David E. Kelley and producer Jack Bender.

You got a serial killer taunting a retired cop via email and old fashioned snail mail, forcing the old man to try to bring the killer to justice before he strikes again.

The series, based on King’s 2014 novel of the same name, stars Brendan Gleeson and Harry Treadaway and is set to run for 10 episodes.

The show is an “AT&T Original.” Isn’t it interesting the number of non-movie companies making movies and TV these days? What’s next? Electrolux: the story of a killer dishwasher, produced by Frigidaire? But hey, no complaints. The more the merrier, right? It’s just more TV for us to watch!

Mr. Mercedes premieres on Audience at 8 p.m. on Wednesday, August 9.
