Stephen King’s The Institute is getting a TV adaptation. 

The forthcoming limited TV series will reimagine King’s latest novel The Institute for the small screen. Snatching up the rights to the novel are David E. Kelley and Jack Bender, who will develop the story for Spyglass Media Group.

Bender will direct the series, while both he and Kelley will executive produce.

“Having the opportunity to work on a new and brilliant book by Stephen King is an absolute privilege,” said Spyglass’ Lauren Whitney. “We are thrilled to collaborate with this dream team, including the incomparable David E. Kelley, and Jack Bender, the architect behind this project, whose extensive directing and executive producing credits speak for themselves. After such a competitive pursuit, we have big plans for The Institute here at Spyglass.”

The Institute hit shelves Tuesday.
