PATIENT ZERO being developed for TV

According to author Jonathan Maberry on Twitter, his zombie novel Patient Zero is being developed for TV.

He writes:
PATIENT ZERO is in development for TV. Waiting on word about a pilot.

In Patient Zero, Joe Ledger is a Baltimore detective who has just been secretly recruited to deal with the problems that Homeland Security can't handle. His first mission: stop a group of terrorists from releasing a bio-weapon that can turn ordinary people into zombies.

I just started reading Patient Zero and think it would make for some exciting television, especially if a Patient Zero series or mini-series ended up on a network such as HBO.

  1. PATIENT ZERO and the next two books in the Joe Ledger series are in deelopment for network TV. Details are pending.

    In the meantime, Joe Ledger will return in THE DRAGON FACTORY (March 2010) squaring off against modern day Nazis who are using cutting-edge genetics to complete the Master Race program. (Reserve your copy now from your favorite bookstore.)

    And in 2011 he’ll face off against THE KING OF PLAGUES, a secret society who are using modern versions of the Ten Plagues of Egypt as terrorist weapons to crash world economies.

    There are also two free Joe Ledger short stories available online: “COUNTDOWN” takes is a prequel to PATIENT ZERO (http://us.macmillan.com/CMS400/uploadedFiles/COUNTDOWN_free.pdf) and “DEEP, DARK”, which takes place just before the second book, THE DRAGON FACTORY.
