(from AT&T's press release, January 2017) AT&T* AUDIENCE Network has cast for its new original series, "Mr. Mercedes." The new series from Sonar Entertainment will premiere 10 hour-long episodes, which are currently in production in Charleston, South Carolina. TV veterans David E. Kelley ("Boston Legal," "Ally McBeal," "The Practice") has written the adaptation, while Jack Bender ("Lost," "Under the Dome," "Game of Thrones") will direct. The duo will serve as executive producers, along with Temple Hill Entertainment's Marty Bowen and Wyck Godfrey. The series will premiere later this year on AUDIENCE Network exclusively on DIRECTV, AT&T U-verse, and DIRECTV NOW. Leading the "Mr. Mercedes" cast are Brendan Gleeson ("Harry Potter") as Detective Bill Hodges, Harry Treadaway ("Penny Dreadful") as Brady Hartsfield, Kelly Lynch ("Magic City") as Deborah Hartsfield, Jharrel Jerome ("Moonlight") as Jerome Robinson, Scott Lawrence ("Avatar") as Detective Peter Dixon, Robert Stanton ("Mercury Rising") as Anthony "Robi" Frobisher, Breeda Wool ("Unreal") as Lou Linklatter, Justine Lupe ("Francis Ha") as Holly Gibney, and Ann Cusack ("Nightcrawler") as Olivia Trelawney, with Mary Louise-Parker ("Weeds") as Janey Patterson, and Holland Taylor ("The Truman Show") as Ida Silver. "Mr. Mercedes" follows a demented killer Brady Hartsfield (Treadaway) who taunts a retired police detective Bill Hodges (Gleeson) with a series of lurid letters and emails, forcing the ex-cop to undertake a private, and potentially felonious, crusade to bring the killer to justice before he is able to strike again.
