An inside look with the majority of directors who’ve adapted Stephen King’s work for screen.

In 1976, Brian de Palma directed CARRIE, the first novel and adaptation of Stephen King’s work. Since then, more than 50 directors have adapted the master of horror’s books, in more than 80 films and series, making him now the most adapted author still alive in the world. KING ON SCREEN features an inside look with those who have adapted Stephen King’s work, showcasing the unique relationship as they reimagine his style for film and television.
