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.
