Stephen King's Kingdom Hospital

The series is set up to play out like a book. Stephen King himself was quoted as saying, "Remember that Kingdom Hospital is a 'novelization for television.' Like a novel, it will pay back dividends but you will have to give it a little bit of time." King describes the show as a mix of ER and The Shining.
