Based on the novella, the show tells the story of a foreboding mist that arrives in one small town ushering in a terrifying new reality for its residents, putting their humanity to the test. What will people do to survive when blinded by fear?

Sutherland will play Eve Cunningham who is fighting to protect her daughters from the dangers of the mist and from elsewhere while dealing with a dark past.

Production is set to begin later this year for a 2017 premiere on Spike.
