May 8 (UPI) -- Spike TV has released a 1-minute teaser for its upcoming series based on Stephen King's novella The Mist.
Starring Morgan Spector, Alyssa Sutherland, Gus Birney, Danica Curcic, Okezie Morro, Luke Cosgrove, Darren Pettie, Russell Posner, Dan Butler, Isiah Washington, Jr. and Frances Conroy, the horror story with an apparently high body count is to debut June 22 on the cable network.
The drama focuses on a small-town family "torn apart by a brutal crime," noted a plot synopsis accompanying Sunday's clip on YouTube.
"As they deal with the fallout, an eerie mist rolls in, suddenly cutting them off from the rest of the world and, in some cases, each other. Family, friends and adversaries become strange bedfellows, battling the mysterious mist and its threats, fighting to maintain morality and sanity as the rules of society break down."
