MR MERCEDES @ SDCC 2017: Holland Taylor on bringing to life an unknown character

In San Diego at Comic Con International this year, we had the chance to sit at a small round table with our friends from TheTVaholic, NoReruns, and ShowbizJunkies to talk all things MR MERCEDES with the cast and creative team.

The show, which premieres on AT&T’s Audience Network on DirecTV tonight (Aug 9) at 8/7c, is based on the Stephen King novel of the same name, about a serial killer named Brady Hartsfield (Harry Treadaway) and the retired detective who can’t quite quit the case (Brendan Gleeson, incredible, as always).

Holland Taylor is bringing a new character to the MR MERCEDES universe in Ida Silver, Bill’s neighbor.  She spoke to us about what the show is like, choosing this show (and why), and what we might expect from the series as it plays out!
