Mr. Mercedes is Stephen King’s new thriller, and stars Brendan Gleeson, who has starred in films like Gangs of New York. Mr. Mercedes also stars Harry Treadaway (Penny Dreadful), Holland Taylor (The Truman Show), Kelly Lynch (Magic City), Jharrel Jerome (Moonlight), and Peyton Wich (Stranger Things).
Based on Stephen King’s book published in June 2014, Mr. Mercedes is a show about a “serial killer who taunts a retired police detective with a series of lurid letters and emails. This forces the ex-cop to undertake a private, and potentially felonious, crusade to bring the killer to justice before he can strike again,” reads the official synopsis.
“People will come to Mr. Mercedes for the thrills that Stephen King so readily offers and they will stay for the richness and characters,” David E. Kelley told USAToday.
Mr. Mercedes new series will premiere 10 episodes on AT&T’s Audience network on Aug. 9 at 8 p.m. ET.
