Good Vs. Evil. Where do you stand?
CBS All Access and director Josh Boone‘s (The New Mutants) new adaptation of Stephen King‘s “The Stand” will premiere on CBS All Access on December 17, with new episodes of the 9-episode limited series arriving on a weekly basis. A full trailer is likely on the way very soon, but in the meantime we’ve been provided with a 30-second first look tonight.
Check it out below.
The series will bring to life King’s vision of a world decimated by plague and embroiled in an elemental struggle between good and evil. The fate of mankind rests on the frail shoulders of the 108-year-old Mother Abagail and a handful of survivors. Their worst nightmares are embodied in a man with a lethal smile and unspeakable powers: Randall Flagg, the Dark Man.
The cast includes Alexander Skarsgård as Randall Flagg and Whoopi Goldberg as Mother Abagail. Jovan Adepo, Owen Teague, Greg Kinnear, Brad William Henke, Nat Wolff, Daniel Sunjata, James Marsden, Amber Heard, Odessa Young, Eion Bailey, Katherine McNamara, Heather Graham, Marilyn Manson, Hamish Linklater and Henry Zaga also star.
Showrunners for “The Stand” are Benjamin Cavell and Taylor Elmore (“Justified”).
