Screenrant writes about why JJ Abrams and Damon Lindelof never did The Dark Tower.

Abrams and Lindelof were exhausted after Lost and didn't want to take the time to make The Dark Tower, but that might say more about The Dark Tower than it does Lost. The Dark Tower series was finished, everything was laid out and ready to go, but the two biggest creators in town didn't want to take the job.

Here is an interview with Richard Price about The Outsider where he also hints that there might be a second season.

There’s no telling if “The Outsider” will end like the book or on its own terms (further episodes have not been screened for critics), but Price is already planning for the future. He said he was already working on Season 2 when IndieWire spoke to him in January.

“It’s like pulling a rabbit out of a glass hat — of course there will be another [if HBO wants one],” Price said. “There’s no such thing as a series that, if it does well, they’re not going to want a second season.”

Could a second season be based on the Holly story in If it Bleeds?

The Ashcroft-Cache Creek Journal reports that The Stand will be filming in the area.

Victoria Weller says that a crew producing a TV miniseries based on Stephen King’s The Stand will be moving into the region before the Twilight Zone set is struck, to film on Cornwall Road, Highway 97C, the Ashcroft Reserve, and in downtown Ashcroft for one scene which, like The Twilight Zone, will require a blackout for several hours in the 4th and Brink Street area.
Weller says that The Stand will be followed by the TV series Resident Alien. The film commissioner says that she is hoping that the Project Blue Book TV series will return, and that another TV series, Van Helsing, is looking into the area.

So, if you’re in the area, keep your camera ready…
