‘The Shining’ TV Series ‘Overlook’ by JJ Abrams is Still Moving Forward


It was revealed last spring that as part of J.J. Abrams and Bad Robot’s overall deal with WarnerMedia that they were developing a host of projects for their HBO Max streaming service including Overlook, a spinoff set in the world of Stephen King’s The Shining.

No other major updates on the project have come in the time since then but in a new interview with Entertainment Weekly, HBO head Casey Bloys revealed it’s still moving forward, saying: “We haven’t seen anything. I’m excited to see it. They seem encouraged and happy, but I don’t have any update other than they’re busily working away at Bad Robot.”

It was previously reported that Overlook will feature iconic characters from the horror-thriller, and explore the untold, terrifying stories of the most famous haunted hotel in American fiction. Castle Rock alums Dustin Thomason and Scott Brown will write and executive produce the 10-episode drama. The series marks the latest attempt by WarnerMedia to capitalize on King’s novel into other forms.
