Bad Robots and King previously teamed up for projects such as “Castle Rock”, “11.22.63”, and “Lisey’s Story”.  “Billy Summers” will mark the fourth series where we will see them collaborate. Their most recent collaboration “Lisey’s Story”, a drama miniseries aired on Apple TV Plus and followed Lisey Landon, a widow as some events trigger her past memories.

In an interview, King spoke about the series. He said that “Lisey’s Story” is long and streaming helps tell the story with “nuance”. The American author also stated that it requires bravery to tell a tale.
