After an enormously successful collaboration on the critically acclaimed Into the West, TNT is teaming once again with DreamWorks Television and executive producer Steven Spielberg, this time for an epic, six-hour adaptation of Stephen King and Peter Straub's other-worldly adventure "The Talisman."

This project also returns the drama network to King territory after such high-profile projects as Salem's Lot, one of cables most popular movies of 2004, and this years "Nightmares & Dreamscapes: From the Stories of Stephen King."

Written in 1984, "The Talisman" marks the first collaboration between bestselling authors King and Straub. It tells the story of Jack Sawyer, a boy who goes on a quest through this world and through a parallel world known as The Territories, experiencing both good and evil in each. His goal is to obtain a mysterious talisman that will save his dying mothers life, as well as the life of her twinner, the Queen of The Territories.
