The Shining is a three-episode horror television miniseries based on the Stephen King book of the same name. Directed by Mick Garris from King's teleplay, it is the second adaptation of King's book after a 1980 film by Stanley Kubrick and was written and produced by King based on his dissatisfaction with Kubrick's version. ABC was quick to offer King the ability to write his script for the adaptation of his book thanks to previous successes with King miniseries such as It (1990), The Tommyknockers (1993), and The Stand (1994), which was also directed by Garris. The miniseries was shot at The Stanley Hotel in Estes Park, Colorado, King's inspiration for the novel, in March 1997.
