NEW YORK, July 5 (UPI) -- American Horror Story and Six Feet Under alum Frances Conroy has signed on to star in Spike's 10-part series The Mist.
Set to air in 2017, the TWC-Dimension Television production is based on Stephen King's novella by the same name.
"The Mist tells a harrowing story about a seemingly innocuous mist that seeps into a small town and creates immense havoc," a press release explained. "Conroy has been cast in the role of Nathalie, a modern-day ecological martyr. While she is seemingly more connected to nature than most people, her instincts about her fellow humans are dead on."
The Mist was previously adapted for the big screen in 2007. The film starred Thomas Jane, Marcia Gay Harden and Andre Braugher, as well as future The Walking Dead cast members Laurie Holden, Jeffrey DeMunn and Melissa McBride.
