J.J. Abrams may inject a little Stephen King horror into Apple TV Plus

Lisey's Story will apparently star Oscar winner Julianne Moore.

Apple TV Plus is reportedly getting a third J.J. Abrams-produced show, with the latest jumping into Stephen King horror.

The Cupertino, California, company ordered an eight-episode adaptation of Lisey's Story, King's 2006 horror-romance novel for its upcoming TV streaming service, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Apple likely paid a tidy sum for the show, since it reportedly sparked a bidding war involving several companies.

Oscar winner Julianne Moore will reportedly star as Lisey Landon, who's trying to move on two years after her novelist husband's death. As you'd expect from horror master King, she ends up facing some dark, repressed realities about her husband and has to deal with one of his fans stalking her.

King will apparently write all the episodes, which are being produced by Abrams and his production company Bad Robot. It'll be executive produced by Moore, King, Abrams and Bad Robot TV boss Ben Stephenson, Hollywood Reporter noted.

Neither Apple, Abrams, Moore nor King immediately responded to requests for comment.

Star Wars: Episode 9 director Abrams is already involved in two shows that'll appear on Apple's streaming service -- the Sara Bareilles romantic comedy Little Voice and Jennifer Garner-starring drama My Glory Was I Had Such Friends.
