The following is the line-up of eight one-hour stories included in TNTís NIGHTMARES & DREAMSCAPES:

Umneyís Last Case

Directed by Rob Bowman (Reign of Fire, Elektra); teleplay by April Smith (The Taking of Pelham One Two Three)
After the death of his son, writer Sam Landry (William H. Macy) is so desperate to lead another life, he writes himself into his own book, forcing his long-time character (also played by Macy) to change places with him and live in the modern day. But things get deadly when Landry realizes he is trapped and cannot write himself out of his new reality.

The End of the Whole Mess

Directed by Mikael Salomon (TNTís Salemís Lot); teleplay by Lawrence D. Cohen (Carrie, Stephen Kingís It)
The world had changed. Violence, war and hatred and replaced with kindness, peace and love. But at what price? Renowned filmmaker Howie Fornoy (Ron Livingston), with just one hour to live, recounts the details of his brotherís (Henry Thomas) worldwide experiment gone terribly wrong.
Crouch End

Directed by Mark Haber (Border Patrol, Alien Cargo, Daises in December); teleplay by Kim LeMasters (Threshold)
A newly wed American couple (Eion Bailey and Claire Forlani) honeymooning in London goes to Crouch End to have dinner with a friend. They soon learn the town is not what it appears to be, and the more they get lost, the more they become trapped in another dimension.

The Fifth Quarter

Directed by Rob Bowman (Reign of Fire, Elektra); teleplay by Alan Sharp (Rob Roy, Reversible Errors)
Willie (Jeremy Sisto), a just-released convict, learns from his dying friend of a map in four parts that reveals the location of $1 million from a robbery. Seeking revenge for the death of his friend and the money, as well, Willie hunts down the others who hold the remaining three parts to the map, risking his family and his freedom. Samantha Mathis co-stars.

Autopsy Room Four

Directed by Mikael Salomon (TNTís Salemís Lot); teleplay by April Smith (The Taking of Pelham One Two Three)
Businessman Howard Cottrell (Richard Thomas) is on vacation playing one of his many games of golf. Chasing the ball into the undergrowth, he is bitten by a snake and completely paralyzed, showing no signs of life. At the hospital, unable to communicate, he is the key witness to his own autopsy. Greta Scacchi co-stars.

You Know They Got a Hell of a Band

Written and directed by Mike Robe (News at Eleven, Guts and Glory: The Rise and Fall of Oliver North).
A wrong turn on a lonely road turns frightening for Clark and Mary Willingham (Steven Weber and Kim Delaney) as they stumble upon a town not on any map Ė Rock and Roll Heaven, Oregon. There is a free concert every night, but the price of admission is high Ė once the audience enters, it can never leave.

Battleground

Directed by Brian Henson (Farscape, Muppet Treasure Island); teleplay by Richard Christian Matheson (Mobius, It Waits)
John Renshaw (William Hurt), a professional hit man, successfully murders the CEO of a prestigious toy company only to face the biggest fight of his life when a package from the toy company is delivered to his house with surprising, deadly contents.

The Road Virus Heads North

Directed by Sergio Mimica-Gezzan (TNTís Into The West, Invasion, Taken); teleplay by Peter Filardi (Salemís Lot, Flatliners)
Richard Kinnell (Tom Berenger) is a famous writer who, at a doctorís visit, learns he may soon have to deal with his own mortality. On the drive back to his home, he buys a mysterious painting. Each time he looks at it, it changes to become more menacing and sinister. He pieces together that the painting is trying to kill himÖbut not if he can destroy it first. Marsha Mason co-stars.

Five of the adaptations for NIGHTMARES & DREAMSCAPES come from Kingís 1993 anthology of the same name. The Road Virus Heads North and Autopsy Room Four come from Kingís 2002 anthology Everythingís Eventual, while Battleground comes from 1978ís Nightshift.
