After the success of “Castle Rock,” another Stephen King work is in the process of being adapted. A show based on “Jerusalem’s Lot,” titled “Chapelwaite,” will premiere on Epix later this year. And while details about the TV series are still somewhat scant, we have a basic idea of what fans can expect.

At press time, actor Adrien Brody and “Schitt’s Creek” star Emily Hampshire are the only two confirmed cast members. Brody will play Captain Charles Boone and Hampshire will play Rebecca Morgan.

The plot, according to Variety, will follow Brody’s character in the 1850s as he relocates his three children to the Boone family home, located in the Maine town of Preacher’s Corners, following his wife’s death. It is here in Maine, like many of King’s stories, where Boone confronts darkness that lingers in the town as well as his own family history.

Hampshire’s character then returns home from college to write a story for a publication called Atlantic Magazine. The writer, while suffering from a bit of writer’s block, comes across Boone and his children. She decides to become the governess of Boone’s infamous house, the Chapelwaite manor, in an attempt to make them the subject of her story. She quickly learns of the Boone family legacy and the darkness that has plagued her own family.

“Chapelwaite” has been given a 10 episode order by Epix with Peter and Jason Filardi singing on as showrunners. Peter previously wrote King’s TV adaptation for his novel “Salem’s Lot,” a miniseries that premiered on TNT and was also produced by Michael Wright of Epix Productions.

While discussing the “Jerusalem’s Lot” adaptation in December, Wright described the show as “an intense, absolutely terrifying reimagining of classic gothic horror,” reports Deadline.

Wright continued: “...when it comes to horror, it doesn’t get any better or more masterful than Stephen King.”

“Chapelwaite” will begin principal photography this spring and is slated to premiere in the fall.
