HBO Gives Series Order to Drama 'The Outsider' Starring Ben Mendelsohn

HBO has today given a series order to the original drama series The Outsider starring Emmy winner Ben Mendelsohn (Bloodline, Rogue One). The drama based on the novel by Stephen King will produce 10 episodes.

The drama centers on a seemingly straightforward investigation into the gruesome murder of a local boy that leads a seasoned cop and an unorthodox investigator to question everything they believe to be real, as an insidious supernatural force edges its way into the case.

Richard Price (The Night Of) developed the drama, with Jason Bateman (Ozark) set to direct the first two episodes. They will executive produce with Jack Bender, Marty Bowen and Michael Costigan. Mendelsohn will serve as a producer. Aggregate Films and Temple Hill Entertainment will produce.
