Ahead of the premiere of The Mist, Spike TV has unveiled the first featurette introducing Alyssa Sutherland (Vikings) as Eve Copeland. She plays a tough mother who wants to protect her daughter Alex (Gus Birney) from danger.
Copeland is looked down upon by other residents after her daughter Alex reported a rape against the star footballer of the town. Whether this incident adds an extra layer of mystery alongside the bizarre creatures of the mist remains to be seen.
The Stephen King's horror novella is envisaged for television by executive producer and writer Christian Torpe and is produced by TWC-Dimension Television.
The Mist centres on a small town and a family 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 Mist cast includes Morgan Spector Frances Conroy, Alyssa Sutherland, Gus Birney, Dan Butler, Luke Cosgrove, Danica Curcic, Okezie Morro, Darren Pettie, Russell Posner, and Isiah Whitlock.
The ten episode series premieres on Spike TV on June 22, 2017, at 10 pm, ET/PT. Spike will roll out more featurettes introducing other significant characters of the series.
