The novel tells the interconnected stories of a group of strangers who are suddenly plagued with sudden traumas and unexplained phobias that didn’t exist prior. Eventually, these seeming strangers all converge on a small Nevada motel to confront their mysterious secret once and for all.

This news comes as FOX is separating itself from 20th Century Fox TV, which is going to belong to Disney next year. The network is still developing numerous police and procedural shows, including the upcoming Saturday Night Special, and two different cop dramas from creators Greg Berlanti and Howard Gordon.
