Talisman could become a regular series

stephen kingAs we all know, the Stephen King / Peter Straub novel The Talisman is being made into a six-part miniseries for TNT for the 2008 season.

Now TNT has told advertisers that the Stephen Spielberg-produced miniseries could also become a regular series in 2009.

The original novel, the first collaboration between King and Straub, focused on a young boy named Jack Sawyer who flips back and forth between two worlds: our world and a mystical but malevolent world known as the Territories as he attempts to secure the titular talisman that may save his dying mother. A sequel, Black House, followed many years later. Both stories also tie into King's larger Dark Tower series, which may also be developed for television.

I think it's a great idea. I've been a fan of Stephen King for years. I just finished "The Talisman," and it's a great story that they should turn into a regular TV series. It should do very well. And putting "The Dark Tower series" as a regular TV series is a brillent idea. It's too long of a story to put into a movie or a mini-series form. It's one of the stories that deserves to be told by the fullest and uncut. I think it will be great also. All you need is the right casting,the right screenwriter and then right director, and it's golden.
