Anika Noni Rose is the newest addition to Stephen King's Bag of Bones miniseries. According to Variety, "Rose will play Sara Tidwell, a blues singer who haunts a bestselling novelist embroiled in a bitter custody battle". Previously announced cast members include Pierce Brosnan, Annabeth Gish, and Melissa George.

Mick Garris is adapting Bag of Bones into a four-hour miniseries for A&E. Shooting begins this month, but a premiere date has not been set at this time.

“Several years after his wife’s death, novelist Mike Noonan still suffers writer’s block. A dream inspires him to return to the couple’s summer retreat in western Maine, a lakeside house called Sara Laughs. Shortly after arriving, Noonan is caught in the middle of a custody battle involving the daughter of an attractive young widow and the child’s enormously wealthy grandfather. He also discovers that Sara Laughs is haunted and that his late wife, Joanna, still has something to tell him.”
