Castle Rock is a fictional town that has provided the setting for many of author Stephen King's stories, and is now the locale for a new series set to debut on streaming service Hulu on July 25th. Among the ensemble cast are Sissy Spacek, André HollandBill Skarsgård, Melanie Lynskey, Scott Glenn, Jane Levy and Terry O'Quinn.

Hulu have produced a short documentary which explores the real life locations in King's home state of Maine that inspired the stories behind Castle Rock. Check it out below.

A psychological-horror series set in the Stephen King multiverse, Castle Rock combines the mythological scale and intimate character storytelling of King’s best-loved works, weaving an epic saga of darkness and light, played out on a few square miles of Maine woodland. The fictional Maine town of Castle Rock has figured prominently in King’s literary career: Cujo, The Dark Half, IT and Needful Things, as well as novella The Body and numerous short stories such as Rita Hayworth and The Shawshank Redemption are either set there or contain references to Castle Rock. Castle Rock is an original suspense/thriller — a first-of-its-kind reimagining that explores the themes and worlds uniting the entire King canon, while brushing up against some of his most iconic and beloved stories.
