How to Watch ‘Lisey’s Story’ — Stephen King’s Latest Supernatural Series
Lisey’s Story is a new miniseries based on Stephen King’s 2006 novel of the same name. The supernatural drama was written for TV by the author himself and stars award-winning actors like Julianne Moore and Clive Owen. If you’re hoping to dive into the psychological thriller, here’s a breakdown of where and how to watch Lisey’s Story.
What is ‘Lisey’s Story’ about?
Lisey’s Story is a thriller/love story that follows widow Lisey Landon (Julianne Moore). After losing her husband, famous novelist Scott Landon (Clive Owen), Lisey begins remembering the special moments they shared.
But some of her traumatic memories of Scott also begin to surface. Lisey tries to process the horrific tragedies in her and Scott’s lives through a terrifying supernatural journey.
Unlike other modern King series, each episode of Lisey’s Story was penned by the author himself. And according to producer JJ Abrams, it is because of King’s passion for the project.
“To write every episode of this piece was really an indication of how much he cared,” Abrams told TV Line. “He was writing the actual blueprints for every day on set. He and [director] Pablo [Larraín] had great collaboration, but this was a Stephen King authored piece, so that was terrific.”
