Brendan Gleeson learns a hard lesson in the new trailer for Mr. Mercedes: You can never get out of the game.

Based on Stephen King’s book of the same name, AT&T Audience Network’s new thriller follows Bill Hodges (Gleeson), a retired police detective who gets drawn back into the field when demented murderer Brady Hartsfield (Harry Treadaway) starts taunting him with a series of emails. This sends Detective Hodges on an off-the-books — and at times illegal — quest to bring this criminal, who mowed down a group of people with a Mercedes, to justice.

“Every cop gets one they just can’t shake,” declares Hodges. “This is mine.”

Watch the intense trailer above.

Executive-produced by King, David E. Kelley, and Jack Bender, the series also stars Mary Louis-Parker (Weeds), Holland Taylor (The Truman Show), Kelly Lynch ( Magic City), Jharrel Jerome (Moonlight), Scott Lawrence (Avatar), Robert Stanton ( Mercury Rising), Breeda Wool (UnREAL), Justine Lupe ( Francis Ha), and Ann Cusack (Nightcrawler). The cast will be on hand at San Diego Comic-Con next week for a panel on Sunday, July 23 at 1:30 p.m. PT.

Mr. Mercedes premieres Aug. 9 at 8 p.m. ET.
