In February of this year, Hulu announced a partnership with J.J. Abrams and Stephen King to create another limited series based on one of King's works (the trio previously collaborated on the time-travel thriller "11/22/63" last year, which is currently streaming on Hulu for subscribers).
The series, a psychological-horror titled "Castle Rock," is named after the fictional town in King's native Maine which has served as the setting for a number of his novels, novellas and short stories. The series will explore the themes and worlds uniting King's entire canon, while incorporating some of his most iconic and beloved stories.
Announced today, André Holland (still basking in "Moonlight's" post-awards season glow) has been cast as the lead in "Castle Rock," playing Henry, a death row attorney with a unique and complicated history in Castle Rock, Maine.
Specific plot details are still underwraps.
Hulu issued a 10-episode order for the series, with production set to begin in August 2017.
Holland last appeared in a TV series in FX’s "American Horror Story: Roanoke" and Cinemax's "The Knick."
