Summary In this follow up to Stephen King on the Big Screen (2009) Mark Browning turns his critical eye upon the much-neglected subject of the best-selling author's work in television, examining what it is about King's fiction that makes it particularly suitable for the small screen. By focusing on this body of work, from ratings successes The Stand and The Night Flier to lesser- known TV films Storm of the Century (1999), Rose Red (2002), Kingdom Hospital (2003) and the 2004 remake of Salem's Lot, Browning is able to articulate how these adaptations work and, in turn, suggest new ways of viewing them
