"Elementary" star Lucy Liu as signed on to star in Blumhouse Television's upcoming limited series "Later" based on Stephen King's bestselling supernatural crime novel of the same name, which was published in March 2021 by Hard Case Crime.

The story follows Tia, a literary agency owner who is raising her son Jamie alone and finds herself on the brink of professional ruin when her star author client dies before turning out the work that will make her agency financially whole. Jamie has the supernatural ability to talk to the dead, all of whom tell him the truth. This is very helpful when he talks to the dead author and feeds the contents of the book to his mother, who writes it herself and publishes it under the author's name, to great success. But this gift can be used for more nefarious purposes. Tia's police detective girlfriend figures out what the boy can do, and soon the youth gets over his head in the spirit world.

"Later" is created by Raelle Tucker, who is best known for her work on HBO's "True Blood" and Netflix's "Jessica Jones". She also penned the script for the pilot episode. The series will be executive produced by Jason Blum, Chris McCumber and Jeremy Gold for Blumhouse Television.

The television production company is also producing one of King's stories from his anthology novel "If It Bleeds" for Netflix's "Mr. Harrigan's Phone". Production just finished, with John Lee Hancock directing Donald Sutherland and Jaeden Martell.

Liu is also set to star in the Warner Bros DC sequel "Shazam! Fury of the Gods" as the villain Kalypso.
