Lisey's Story is a tale of marriage and the aftermath. Both romantic and haunting. Noone gets the "haunting" part right like Stephen King. This one is sure to be a hit when it streams on Apple + in June.

The local connection here with this miniseries is that it was filmed right here in the Garden State. According to NJ.COM the miniseries filmed a portion of the show in New Jersey in Franklin Township, Somerset County. The filming took place at a historic Somerset County home, the Van Liew-Suydam House. According to the Meadows Foundation,  "Peter Van Liew settled on this site back in the 1700s, and why Joseph Suydam later built part of the house that is seen today." Pretty cool that this new streaming project has roots here in New Jersey, Right in Franklin Township.
