What did Stephen King say about the series?
In an interview prior to the show’s release, King said, “Lisey’s story is my favorite, it always has been. At its core, this is a love story. It is a story of the courage of a woman who would do almost anything to save her husband’s life and sanity.
“Lisey is something different to me. It is very important to me. I had pneumonia around the year 2000 and was about to “drop out”.
“When I got home from the hospital, my wife had cleaned up my study and I was like, ‘I died, I am a ghost.’
“The idea of Lisey’s story grew out of that, especially the idea that when writers invent things, they go to another world.”
However, he added that he wanted to make the show better than the story in the novel, saying, “I thought if someone was going to screw it up […] Nobody but me is going to screw it up. “
Lisey’s Story launches on Friday, June 4th on Apple TV +.
