HUMANITAS Winner Stephen Nathan to Adapt Book for Fox
Fox is adapting New York Times best-seller Zoobiquity for the small screen.
The network has committed to a script with penalty for the TV version of the 2013 nonfiction book written by Dr. Barbara Natterson-Horowitz and Kathryn Bowers, teaming with Bones executive producers Stephen Nathan and Jon Collier, The Hollywood Reporter has learned.
Zoobiquity is a medical drama following a dynamic group of doctors helping treat patients by searching for correlation in an unexpected place — the animal kingdom. Nathan will write the pilot script with Collier.
Produced by 20th Television, Nathan and Collier will serve as executive producers, along with Spencer Medof. Natterson-Horowitz and Bowers will produce.
This should be familiar territory for Nathan, who executive produces Fox's long-running crime procedural Bones, itself an adaptation from a series of novels by author Kathy Reichs.
