She won the Academy Award for her performance in "Ghost," and has also starred in such films as "Made in America," "Boys on the Side," "Ghosts of Mississippi" and "Girl, Interrupted," and such animated classics as "The Lion King" and "Toy Story 3." Whoopi most recently starred in Paramount Pictures' comedy "Nobody's Fool" opposite Tiffany Haddish and in "Furlough."

Jovan Adepo will play Larry Underwood, a young musician with a taste for fame, as well as illegal substances. When the plague hits, he is forced to confront his demons as he makes his way to the new world. Adepo was most recently seen as Antron McCray in Ava DuVernay's "When They See Us," which chronicled the story of the Central Park Five.

THE STAND is Stephen King's apocalyptic vision of a world decimated by plague and embroiled in elemental struggle between good and evil. The fate of mankind rests on the frail shoulders of the 108-year-old Mother Abagail and a handful of survivors. Their worst nightmares are embodied in a man with a lethal smile and unspeakable powers: Randall Flagg, the Dark Man.

The series will be produced by CBS Television Studios. Josh Boone and Ben Cavell will write and executive produce, with Boone also directing.
