Up first will be “Battleground” at 9 p.m., followed by “Crouch End” at 10, starring Eion Bailey and Claire Forlani. In this episode, a newly-wed American couple honeymooning in London travels to distant Crouch End to have dinner with a friend, in spite of multiple warnings not to go there. They soon learn the town is not what it appears to be, and the more they get lost, the scarier it gets. Can they ever find their way out?

Claire Forlani ("Hooligans", "Meet Joe Black") who stars in this episode, spoke with Dish recently about “Nightmares & Dreamscapes,” Stephen King, her worst fears, and more. Here’s what she had to say:

Q: Before the opportunity to be in this miniseries came up, were you a Stephen King fan?

A: I loved Shawshank Redemption, but I barely managed to get through “Misery”, and “The Shining” was the only kind of horror movie I’d ever managed to watch, so oddly enough, the kind of 1 ½ films I have managed to see have been Stephen King’s in that genre.

Q: Did you ever see any of his horror films?

A: No. I’ve always been too scared. I can’t sleep at night and I have quite a vivid imagination, so it was just something that I just, yeah, reading, watching, just always avoided.

Q: So how did you feel when you were approached about being in a Stephen King project?

A: Well, luckily, my manager who’s been through this with me over the years, she said that there’s a really cool concept that TNT has come up with called, “Nightmares and Dreamscapes”, and they want you to do this one called “Crouch End”, and she explained the whole idea to me, the concept, and I said, ‘Well Marsha, no.’ But she just said, ‘No, I know, but I really think that you’ll like this.’ So, because she knows me so well, I read it, and it was one of those kind of sweet moments when you read something and think, ‘This is something really cool and exciting.’ I thought ‘I’d like to do it.’ Then, it opened the door to a whole world that I hadn’t stepped into before. So now, I’m actually kind of into this whole idea.”
