Mr Mercedes Renewed For A Second Season

Posted: October 10, 2017, 23:44:22

AT&T's Audience Network announced today that there will be a second season of Mr Mercedes. Filming will begin in Febrary 2018 and have it's premiere launching later in the year.


Press Release: EL SEGUNDO, Calif., Oct. 10, 2017 – Leading up to the highly anticipated season finale tomorrow, Oct. 11 at 8pm ET/PT, AUDIENCE Network is pleased to announce that it has picked up this year’s break out show, “Mr. Mercedes,” for a second season. Production for the 10 one-hour episodes is scheduled to begin in February of 2018 in Charleston, South Carolina with the premiere launching later in the year. The series is produced by Sonar Entertainment.

Returning for the second season will be television veterans David E. Kelley (Big Little Lies, Ally McBeal) to write the script and Jack Bender (Lost, Under the Dome) as director. King, Kelley and Bender will also continue to serve as executive producers, along with Dennis Lehane, who will also write. The second season will be based on King’s best-selling Bill Hodges Trilogy, which includes, “Mr. Mercedes,” “Finders Keepers” and “End of Watch.”

“I’m excited and thrilled,” said Kelley. “Stephen King, Dennis Lehane, Jack Bender, Brendan Gleeson…this is a special team indeed.”

“Mr. Mercedes is Stephen King writing about the monsters inside his characters rather than outside,” said Bender. “We were extremely fortunate to attract an amazing cast, led by Brendan Gleeson and Harry Treadaway, to bring these flawed, complex colorful characters to life. With Sonar and AT&T, along with great scripts and our talented team in Charleston, I am thrilled to keep telling this story.”

“We’re thrilled that the first installment of ‘Mr. Mercedes’ resonated with such a wide audience,” said Christopher Long, head of AT&T AUDIENCE Network. “David E. Kelley, Jack Bender, Dennis Lehane, and Sonar did a masterful job crafting a series that honored the original work by Stephen King. We’re excited to have the opportunity to create a second season with this incredible team.”

“AT&T AUDIENCE Network has been a great home for the series and we are thrilled to be moving forward with the entire creative team returning,” added Tom Lesinski, CEO, Sonar Entertainment. “We can’t wait to get back into production and deliver another outstanding season.”

Season 1 of “Mr. Mercedes” followed a demented killer Brady Hartsfield (Harry Treadaway) who taunts a retired police detective Bill Hodges (Brendan 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.

Stephen King describes “Mr. Mercedes” as his first hard-boiled detective tale. The novel was published by Scribner in June 2014 and became an immediate No. 1 New York Times Bestseller upon its release. Shortly after the release of the novel, King announced that “Mr. Mercedes” was the first of a projected trilogy. The second novel, “Finders Keepers,” was published by Scribner in June 2015, and the third novel, “End of Watch,” was published by Scribner in June 2016.

“Mr. Mercedes” season 1 episodes are available OnDemand on DIRECTV and U-verse platforms to DirecTV and U-verse customers. AT&T AUDIENCE Network is available on DIRECTV Ch. 239 or U-verse TV Ch. 1114 and via live streaming on the DIRECTV and U-verse apps and DIRECTV NOW.

Mr Mercedes Panel At TCA 2017

Posted: July 26, 2017, 10:46:27

At Tuesday’s Television Critics Association press tour panel for Mr Mercedes we got some new info about the series.

~ ~ SPOILER ~ ~

The ending of King’s book is very similar to the Manchester, UK, terror attack earlier this year. Producers confirmed that they changed the series ending. Director Jack Bender said that the show’s choice to change that framework was decided early on and was a “better way to make it a potentially more catastrophic event.”

Bender also said the series will not shy away from showing the dark or disturbing aspects of such events because it had a responsibility to show how such monsters affect people and “how lives are destroyed by one heinous act”. “Mr. Mercedes will just put the audience in that horror and not try to walk the tightrope.”

Jack Bender, Brendan Gleeson, Mary Louise Parker, Jahrrel Jerome, Holland Taylor, Kely Lynch and Harry Treadaway.


Other tidbits included…

…King had said he wishes he’d written some of the changes they made.

…Holland Taylor’s Character Ida wasn’t in the book but is there to humanize Bill.

…Audience Network guy said that the last six episodes of Mr Mercedes will be the best thing we have seen on TV all year.”

I have a rule that says in order to determine if a TV show is good or not you need to see at least four episodes. That is about how long it takes for you to get into the characters, get a sense of where the show is going and what the creators want to tell you. I have been lucky enough to get a chance to see the first four episodes of Mr Mercedes and in this spoiler free review I’ll let you know if this is a show you need to see…

Mr. Mercedes
Season 1, AT&T/DirecTV, Aug. 9

Based on its first two episodes, this dramatization of the Edgar Award-winning 2014 mystery novel of the same title is the Stephen King adaptation to watch this summer. (Spike’s version of “The Mist” debuts June 22.) David E. Kelley wrote the 10-episode series about a retired detective taunted by a mass killer he couldn’t catch. It has a bit of a “Mr. Robot” vibe and an interesting cast that includes Brendan Gleeson, Holland Taylor, Breeda Wool, Kelly Lynch and Mary-Louise Parker. Harry Treadaway of “Penny Dreadful” plays the killer, replacing Anton Yelchin, who died last year before filming began.

Here are a few now photos from Mr Mercedes.

Mr Mercedes Filming At Local Restaurant

Posted: February 17, 2017, 09:12:49

Filming of Mr Mercedes was done at Little Jack's on Wednesday.


Film crews took over Upper King Street restaurant Little Jack's Tavern today to film the TV adaptation of Stephen King's crime series 'Mr Mercedes.'

The cozy throwback-themed restaurant had a new sign up reading "Demasio's Lunch + Dinner," which evokes images of family-owned Italian joint. (This is a hard boiled detective story, after all.)

The crews chose a good rainy day to shoot, since the set included spouts for staged rain. Props and lighting was also set up alongside the forthcoming Pancito and Lefty building.

Police directing traffic said that shooting was set to continue into late afternoon. Little Jack's Tavern said they were closed for today only for filming.
