WATCH: Lisey’s Story (Official Trailer)
While it’s not the first time King and Abrams have collaborated--the duo also worked together on the Hulu series 11.22.63—we are very keen to see what masterful horrors will be conjured under the series’ director: Pablo Larraín.
Larraín is an acclaimed Chilean director who previously helmed the Oscar-nominated Jackie biopic. Devotees of the filmmaker’s work are currently eagerly awaiting his forthcoming Spencer biopic about Princess Diana, starring Kristen Stewart as the titular royal.
Below, everything to know about the forthcoming series.
