Background
Episode Guide

Q: Explain the concept of the eight one-hour stories of NIGHTMARES & DREAMSCAPES.

A: We are really excited because itís a fresh look at Stephen Kingís stories. I think heís the acknowledged master of horror in America. It hasnít been done in this way in a long time, and itís never been done with the strength of a writer like Stephen King. In the eight stories, we have a nice cross section of suspense, human drama, mainline horror and psychological insight. It is a nice mixed salad of Stephen King moods.

Q: Is creating eight separate one-hour dramas a daunting task?

A: Weíre all very proud of the fact that there is a unique attention to details and a spectacular collection of talent to pull off these stories. I donít think this has ever been done before on this scale. Itís a limited series but of epic proportion. It does take work to get your mind around these different stories and feelings within one genre. We are doing everything from the darkness of the undead to the unsettledness of losing your place in the woods, and all the moods in between. It has been a challenge to unify a massive production effort and get these stories happening one after the other in a way that is complete and detailed, and that is in touch with Stephen Kingís vision.

Q: What is so dramatic about Stephen Kingís work?

A: I think Stephen King, unlike any other author in the world, makes us contemplate our mortality. He unsettles us and tickles us all at the same time in a way that is wholly unique to Stephen King. He works from a unique imagination, and he sees the world through a prism that is his alone. All of these stories come from his view of what disturbs him and what keeps him awake at night.
