Justified creator gears up for sci-fi series Talent at FOX
FOX is adapting the sci-fi graphic novel Talent, according to The Wrap, and the network wants Justified creator Graham Yost to take the lead on the project, which has been handed a straight-to-series order.
The official synopsis for the project is: Nicole Dane, the sole survivor of a tragic accident in which 148 people were killed. While her survival is seen as a miracle, Nicole soon discovers she has inherited the talents of those who perished. With her newfound abilities in tow, she sets off on a journey to “bring closure to unfinished stories” while attempting to solve the mystery behind the horrific accident.
Yost will serve as writer and executive producer on the project, while Neal Moritz, Pavun Shetty, Toby Jaffe, Stephen Christy and Ross Richie also executive producing. Talent graphic novel writers Christopher Golden and Tom Sniegoski will co-executive produce.
“When I first read ‘Talent,’ I was immediately hooked, as it took me on an incredible journey I’ll never forget,” Michael Thorn president of entertainment at Fox Broadcasting Company, said in a statement. “This project accomplishes two professional goals of mine: work again with Graham Yost, one of the finest creators in the business; and transition ‘Talent’ from feature development into the world to television. In Graham, Neal Moritz, Sony and Boom, we have the perfect partners who have the vision to bring this fantastic story and its characters to life as we take these important steps in building future FOX.”
