Stephen King returns to TV with a new Syfy series
Syfy has ordered 13 episodes of Haven, a new series based on a Stephen King novella, about a town for cursed people in exile.
The show is based on King's "The Colorado Kid."
Haven centers on a spooky town in Maine where cursed folk live normal lives in exile. When those curses start returning, FBI agent Audrey Parker is brought in to keep those supernatural forces at bay—while trying to unravel the mysteries of Haven.

Sam Ernst and Jim Dunn are writing the pilot and will also serve as executive producers.
The show will air sometime next year.
