A bold new series all about the life and career of Stephen King will be launching at the end of October

LOS ANGELES - Californer -- The highly anticipated web series The Stephen Kingdom will premiere worldwide exclusively on YouTube this Halloween. Hosted by David McCracken, the series is an educational and irreverently comical analysis of the cultural and literary significance of Stephen King.

The first episode, "The Magic of Stephen King," will feature over twenty interviews with people who have been inspired by King, including actors like Nancy Allen (Carrie) and Kyliegh Curran (Doctor Sleep), writers such as Richard Chizmar (Chasing the Boogeyman) and Stephen Graham Jones (My Heart is a Chainsaw), online influencers like Sadie Hartmann (aka Mother Horror), and many more. The series will then continue with a multi-part exploration of Carrie, King's first novel, with numerous additional guests slated to join the conversation.

"As a lifelong Constant Reader and someone who spends way too much time on YouTube, I have always yearned for an ongoing series about Stephen King," says McCracken. "Here's a writer who has been around for five decades and touched every nook, cranny, and shadowy corner of our cultural zeitgeist (not to mention our deepest, darkest fears). A figure this monumental deserves a series that strives to live up to his legacy. Something big and bold. Something fun, outlandish, and educational. Something welcoming to both hardcore King fans and newbies alike."
