3 months ago

According to Deadline, Elementary alum Lucy Liu has officially signed on to star in Blumhouse Television’s upcoming limited series adaptation of Later, based on Stephen King’s bestselling supernatural crime novel of the same name. The novel is one of King’s most recent works as it was just published last March 2021.

The limited series will center around a literary agency owner and single mother named Tia and her son Jamie who has the ability to talk to the dead. His gift will come in handy for Tia as he enlists her son’s help in communicating with her dead client in hopes of saving her company from bankruptcy by completing the late author’s book.

The official book synopsis reads: “The son of a struggling single mother, Jamie Conklin just wants an ordinary childhood. But Jamie is no ordinary child. Born with an unnatural ability his mom urges him to keep secret, Jamie can see what no one else can see and learn what no one else can learn. But the cost of using this ability is higher than Jamie can imagine – as he discovers when an NYPD detective draws him into the pursuit of a killer who has threatened to strike from beyond the grave.

“Later is Stephen King at his finest, a terrifying and touching story of innocence lost and the trials that test our sense of right and wrong. With echoes of King’s classic novel It, Later is a powerful, haunting, unforgettable exploration of what it takes to stand up to evil in all the faces it wears.”

Later is created by Raelle Tucker (True Blood) who wrote the script for the pilot. It will be executive produced by Jason Blum, Chris McCumber, and Jeremy Gold for Blumhouse Television. This marks the second project between Blumhouse and King, with the first one being a Netflix adaptation of Mr. Harrigan’s Phone, which has already completed its production.
