Stephen King‘s first collection of short stories is about to become his first podcast, with The Wrap reporting today that King is producing a podcast titled Strawberry Spring.
The podcast is based on a story from King’s Night Shift collection, published in 1978.
UPDATE: The Wrap is now reporting that King is *not* producing this podcast.
The Wrap reports, “Lee Metzger will write and direct the podcast series, with a cast that includes Garrett Hedlund, Milo Ventimiglia, Herizen F. Guardiola, Sydney Sweeney, Ken Marino and Al Madrigal. More cast members will be announced at a later date.”
“Strawberry Spring follows a journalist who hears the name “Springheel Jack” while listening to the radio, which rekindles memories of when he was a student and heard about the serial killer for the first time. The story quickly turns into a hunt for the killer, and the journalist will not stop at anything to find him.”
Emmy winner Philip Alberstat will produce the Audio Up Media & iHeart Media podcast.
The series is set to premiere this summer.
In addition to the story Strawberry Spring, the Night Shift collection also included Jerusalem’s Lot, Graveyard Shift, The Mangler, Sometimes They Come Back, and Children of the Corn.
