Stephen King's 'Mr. Mercedes' New Teaser and Behind-the-Scenes Videos

We have a new teaser video and behind-the-scenes footage for Stephen King’s novel based Mr. Mercedes, which airs on AT&T Audience Network this August. Brendan Gleeson and Harry Treadaway star in the 10-episode show. Watch the latest videos down below!

Gleeson stars as Bill Hodges, a detective way past his prime who gets his groove back when the psychopathic killer from a high-profile cold case re-emerges to mock him. Hodges is still bothered by the one case he couldn’t solve, a tragedy where innocents waiting to get into a job fair were maimed and murdered by a man in a clown mask who mowed them down in a stolen Mercedes. But that life is just a memory, and most of Hodges’ now sedentary existence revolves around beer and high-calorie food.

Old wounds are reopened when Hodges begins receiving strange letters, videos, and emails with a wicked smiley face from the “Mercedes Killer,” aka Brady Hartsfield (Treadaway), a computer store clerk who has an incestuous relationship with his mother (Kelly Lynch) and holds down a second job as an ice cream vendor to keep an eye on Hodges and his associates.

Based on Stephen King’s 2014 book, “Mr. Mercedes” follows demented killer Brady Hartsfield (Treadaway), who taunts a retired police detective Bill Hodges (Gleeson) with a series of lurid letters and emails, forcing the ex-cop to undertake a private, and potentially felonious, crusade to bring the killer to justice before he is able to strike again.

The show also co-stars Jharrel Jerome, Mary-Louise Parker, Justine Lupe, Scott Lawrence, Ann Cusack, Robert Stanton, Holland Taylor, and Breeda Wool. Look for it on August 9th on Audience Network, available to DirecTV subscribers.

David E. Kelley penned the adaptation, produced by Sonar Entertainment. Jack Bender (“Lost”) is helming. Both executive produce along with Temple Hill Entertainment’s Marty Bowen and Wyck Godfrey.
