That didn’t take long! Only a few days ago, we reported that CBS had given a straight to series order for thirteen episodes adapting James Patterson’s global thriller, Zoo. Now Netflix has acquired the exclusive subscription video on demand rights to the series which will begin streaming on the site immediately following its run on CBS next summer.
CBS has given a 13-episode, straight to series order to Zoo, based on James Patterson’s best-selling novel. Zoo is ‘a global thriller about a wave of violent animal attacks against humans across the planet. As the assaults become more cunning, coordinated and ferocious, a young renegade biologist is thrust into the race to unlock the pandemic’s mystery before there’s no place left for people to hide.’
The novel was an international bestseller and script for the premiere was written by the highly regarded Jeff Pinkner (Fringe, Lost), Josh Appelbaum (Alias, Happy Town), Andre Nemec (Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol) and Scott Rosenberg (High Fidelity, Happy Town). The four will also serve as executive producers on the series. For more details, check out the press release after the jump.
