We are rarely surprised to hear news of another one of Stephen King's works being adapted (or re-adapted) these days, but getting the announcement of one for The Institute so soon definitely caught us off guard. The latest novel from the prolific horror author just released today and it has now been announced that Spyglass Media Group has chosen the story to be brought to TV as a limited series.
The same team behind Mr. Mercedes, another King adaptation, is attached to develop this property. For those who haven't been following along, you can find the official synopsis for The Institute below.[blockquote-0]
