“Jackie’’ director Pablo Larrain is lined up to direct miniseries “Lisey’s Story,’’ with Julianne Moore set to star.

Stephen King wrote all eight episodes himself, adapting his 2006 horror-romance novel for the forthcoming Apple TV+ streaming service. The story, which King has called a personal favorite among his books, follows a widow two years after her husband’s passing, who gradually begins to uncover startling truths about her husband.

Powerhouse producer J.J. Abrams — who previously teamed with King on Hulu series “11.22.63’’ and “Castle Rock’’ — will executive-produce (through his Bad Robot Productions company), as will King and Moore.
