NBC has announced that Tommyknockers is being developed as a "limited" series.
The Hollywood Reporter notes:
King's Tommyknockers is based on the author's 1987 novel about the residents of a small Maine town and how they deal with what they perceive to be an alien spacecraft that has landed nearby. Frank Konigsberg and Larry Sanitsky will executive produce, while Emmy winner Yves Simoneau (Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee) will direct.www.hollywoodreporter.com
I think this is very exciting. The mini-series and the book both failed to live up to the stories full potential. It seems like with a series, the room can be given to flesh out the story itself.
