Marking its official entry into developing long-form event series, Fox Broadcasting Company announced today that it has inked a development deal for Wayward Pines, from M. Night Shyamalan (The Sixth Sense, Unbreakable) and FX Productions.
Fox will order its first event series pilot later this year with plans to debut its first long-form event series in 2014.
“With top-notch auspices and feature-quality production plans, ‘Wayward Pines’ and ‘Blood Brothers’ represent exactly the kind of high-impact, 10- to 12-part events we set out to develop when we entered the limited series business,” said Kevin Reilly, Chairman of Entertainment, Fox Broadcasting Company. “These two series are the first of many big ideas, big names and big talent that you can anticipate will be on our air in the next 12-24 months.”
