The Stand: Heather Graham Joins Cast For Limited Series At CBS All Access


Deadline is exclusively reporting that Heather Graham is the latest name to join the cast of the CBS All Access limited series adaptation of Stephen King’s The Stand.

 

The Stand is an apocalyptic vision of a world decimated by a plague and embroiled in an elemental struggle between good and evil. The fate of mankind rests on the frail shoulders of the one-hundred-and-eight-year-old Mother Abagail and a handful of survivors, including Stuart Redman and their worst nightmares are embodied in a man with a lethal smile and unspeakable powers….the Dark man aka Randall Flagg.

 

Heather Graham (whose recent credits include Bliss and The Rest Of Us) will be playing the role of Rita Blakemoor, a wealthy woman who is ill prepared for the end of the world and attempts to escape superflu-infested New York City.

 

The series is written by Josh Boone and Ben Cavell, with the duo also serving as executive producers alongside Roy Lee, Jimmy Miller, Richard P. Rubinstein. Will Weiske and Miri Yoon will serve as co-producers whilst Knate lee, Jill Killington and Owen King will serve as producers. Stephen King will also write the last chapter of the series, providing a different ending to the novel.
