[TV] FOX Developing Miniseries With M. Night Shyamalan
Posted by Joseph Lee on 01.08.2013

Zap2It reports that FOX is preparing two new miniseries for 2014. The first is Wayward Pines, a thriller that will be executive produced by M. Night Shyamalan. The second is Blood Brothers, about the West Point class of 1861 that was divided by the Civil War.

FOX Entertainment chairman Kevin Reilly said: "'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. 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 to 24 months."

Wayward Pines is based on the novel Pines by Blake Crouch. In FOX's description, it compared the series to Twin Peaks. It follows a Secret Service agent to the titular town in Idaho to look for two missing federal agents. He finds a huge mystery in the city. Chad Hodge (Runaway, The Playboy Club) wrote the script and will executive produce with Shyamalan, Donald De Line and Ashwin Rajan.

Blood Brothers is from Bruce McKenna (Band of Brothers, The Pacific). It follows the 1861 graduates of the United State Military Academy on opposite sides of the Civil War, fighting against each other but still bonded after their time at West Point. McKenna is executive producing with Gary Randall and Timothy Scott Bogart. FOX wants either one of both to pilot later this year for a 2014 premiere.
