Guillermo del Toro's “Strain” vampire saga may get pilot order at FX

PanARMENIAN.Net - Guillermo del Toro's trilogy of vampire novels - "The Strain," "The Fall" and "The Night Eternal" - is heading to the small-screen, TheWrap said citing Deadline.

FX and del Toro are working on a pilot deal to bring the books to television.

Should the deal be completed, del Toro will direct, co-write and executive-produce the project. Chuck Hogan, the co-author of the books, is also writing and executive-producing. (Hogan's other credits include the novel "Prince of Thieves," which was adapted into the 2010 Ben Affleck film "Prince of Thieves.")

Carlton Cuse ("Lost," "Nash Bridges") would serve as executive producer and showrunner for the pilot.

The novels - the first of which, "The Strain," was published in 2009 - follow the efforts of Centers for Disease Control employee Dr. Ephraim Goodweather to save New York City from a vampiric virus that's contaminating the city, after a Boeing 777 makes a mysterious arrival at JFK.
