HBO Max announces new series inspired by Stephen King’s ‘The Shining’

The new series will be called 'Overlook'

HBO Max has announced that they’ve ordered Overlook — a brand-new series for their streaming service — and it’s inspired by Stephen King’s The Shining.

Based on the iconic 1977 horror novel and its 1980 film adaptation, Overlook will feature some of the same characters from The Shining. The show is described as “a horror-thriller series that explores the untold stories of the Overlook Hotel, the most famous haunted hotel in American fiction.”

Overlook will be produced by J.J. Abrams and Ben Stephenson, head of Bad Robot television, through Warner Bros. Production.
