The CW Will Develop Stephen King Story ‘The Revelations of Becka Paulson’ Into Drama Series


Deadline exclusively reported that The CW will be developing the Stephen King short story The Revelations of Becka Paulson into a series, tentatively titled Revelations. The story was originally published in Rolling Stone in 1984 and has been adapted for television once before as an episode of The Outer Limits in 1997. The synopsis released by Deadline/The CW describes the plot as follows:

After accidentally shooting herself in the brain with a nail gun, a Pollyanna-ish Becca Paulson is recruited by an over-it Jesus to be his “chosen one” in stopping the apocalypse. In order to save the world, Becca will have to prove that our deeply backward planet Earth is redeemable — starting with her quirky midwestern hometown.

The series is produced by Warner Brothers and written by Maisie Culver and Katie Lovejoy (who both also produce). There is no word yet on whether a pilot will be made or if the show is ordered to series. Stephen King adaptations have been popular in the last few years, with Hulu’s Castle Rock taking on classic King characters in new stories and the It film franchise shattering box office records.

I am a nurse and dedicated nerd from Boston, MA. When I'm not at work, I'm rewatching old favorites like Supernatural or discovering my new obsessions (too many to count!). When not fangirling, I can be found reading, writing, or listening to a true crime podcast. You can find me on Twitter @juleswritesblog for more nerdy nonsense.
