James Patterson’s bestselling novel Zoo is set to become a series on CBS. The network’s greenlit the series, giving it a 13 episode order with an eye on airing the drama in the summer of 2015.
“Zoo further demonstrates our commitment to high-quality, year-round programming and to high-concept series that play to summer audiences in the U.S. as well as on a global scale,” said Nina Tassler, Chairman, CBS Entertainment. “With this #1 bestseller coming to television, we’re excited to give our viewers a thrill ride with another blockbuster summer event.”
Patterson, James Mangold, Cathy Konrad, Bill Robinson, Leopoldo Gout and Steve Bowen are on board as executive producers. Scott Rosenberg, Andre Nemec, Josh Appelbaum, and Jeff Pinkner are attached as writers and are also executive producing.
Zoo is a global thriller about a wave of violent animal attacks against humans across the planet. As the assaults become more cunning, coordinated and ferocious, a young renegade biologist is thrust into the race to unlock the pandemic’s mystery before there’s no place left for people to hide.
