Actress Kim Delaney Takes Right Wrong Turn In Stephen King TV Story

LOS ANGELES (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Actress Kim Delaney doesn’t think starring in a film based on a Stephen King short story is that scary.

Of course, it helps that the story her film is based on is one of his most playful.

Delaney – who is best known for her Emmy-winning role on NYPD Blue – stars in You Know They Got A Hell Of Band, which is one part of the eight-part TNT mini-series, Nightmares & Dreamscapes: From the Stories of Stephen King.

The story follows a married couple on a road trip who take a wrong turn and wander into “Rock and Roll Heaven, Oregon” – where the dead, or undead, icons of rock’s past trap the living permanently.

Delaney says there’s lots of inside jokes to go with King’s scary satire – beginning with the opening sequence, which features a red Mustang named Sally instead of Christine, and a huge truck like the deadly 18-wheeler in Pet Semetary.

The references to King’s past work were especially enjoyable to Delaney, who admits she a “big fan” of the author.

She’s also a big fan of her co-star, Steven Weber, and says, “Our chemistry is so good that, even as we argued during scenes, we’re laughing constantly between each take.”

Nightmares & Dreamscapes debuts July 12.
