CB: Sonar Entertainment has announced that it will adapt the Stephen King novel Mr. Mercedes into a limited series for television.
Mr. Mercedes, one of King’s latest creations, is a gritty cat-and-mouse mystery thriller. It follows a retired policeman, Bill Hodges, who makes it his life's mission to find a psychotic killer named Mr. Mercedes who committed mass-murder by driving his--you guessed it--Mercedes into a crowd of innocents years ago. Mr. Mercedes is the first installment of a planned trilogy featuring the characters, with King’s next installment entitled Finders Keepers. No plans have been announced yet for a follow-up television series, however. It's most likely that Sonar will determine that after they see how well Mr. Mercedes performs.
