For decades, the vast expanse of Stephen King horror has provided fertile ground for those who wish to bring an already established property to film or television, and with such a wealth of material for producers to work with, it’s not uncommon for them to stumble upon a tale of King’s that hasn’t yet been bought to the mainstream. Such is the case for Revelations, a potential new drama set to air on the CW.
I consider myself quite a hardcore Stephen King fan (I even have a shirt that says “Stephen King Rules” in my closet), which is why I was surprised that I couldn’t recall any work of his titled Revelations. That’s because the short story that the show will be based on was actually titled The Revelations of ‘Becka Paulson, and was published in the July/August 1984 issue of Rolling Stone.
Coming from Maisie Culver (The Last Man Standing), Katie Lovejoy (To All The Boys: Always and Forever, Laura Jean) and Warner Bros. TV., the show will follow the same plot as the short story, with the titular character Becka Paulson accidentally shooting herself in the head with a nail gun, and afterward experiencing strange visions where she could communicate with Jesus Christ, who tells her that he was chosen her to stop the incoming apocalypse.
Revelations is still in the very early stages of its development, so we don’t know if it will make it to primetime TV nor how many episodes it may have been picked up for. But, as I stated above, I’m a diehard Stephen King fan, and will definitely be checking the show out if it eventually makes it to the CW.
