The post accompanied a 70-second video clip that showed a dark screen, crisscrossed with red threads and featuring the voices of numerous characters from movies and TV projects based on King's novels.

King titles such as 'Salem's Lot and Needful Things; locations like Shawshank State Prison and The Barrens; and character names such as Annie Wilkes, Pennywise and Danny Torrance scroll across the screen as the movie audio quotes play.

Many of King's previous works were set in and around the fictional town of Castle Rock.

No casting or air date for its namesake Hulu project have been announced yet.
