In Mr Mercedes a demented serial killer taunts a retired police detective 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 can strike again. Based on the bestselling novel by Stephen King.
Retired detective Bill Hodges, played by Brendan Gleeson, is still haunted by the unsolved case of “Mr. Mercedes,” who claimed sixteen lives when he drove a stolen Mercedes through a line of job-seekers at a local job fair.
Meanwhile, brilliant young psychopath Brady Hartsfield, played by Harry Treadaway, the real Mr. Mercedes, re-emerges to focus his attention on Hodges. What begins as an online cat-and-mouse game between the two soon has deadly real-life consequences as an increasingly desperate Hartsfield becomes bent on leaving his mark on the world. The series also stars Jharrel Jerome, Robert Stanton, Breeda Wool and Holland Taylor.
The 10 episode series is directed by Jack Bender (Under the Dome) and adapted for television and executive produced by David E. Kelley (The Practice).
