Stephen King And David E Kelley Team For Mr. Mercedes

MrmercedesDavid E. Kelley, the guy who created Doogie Howser MD, Ally McBeal, Boston Legal and the aborted Wonder Woman series, is teaming up with horror master Stephen King and Lost director Jack Bender to produce a miniseries called Mr. Mercedes for Sonar Entertainment.

Based on King's novel about a psychopath who kills people by driving his Mercedes into crowds and the retired cop that goes after him, Kelley said, "Mr. Mercedes is a great story that will translate beautifully to the screen if I don't mess it up."

King and Bender worked together recently on the CBS series Under The Dome.
