The Passage” may be coming to Fox as a new TV show.  The network has ordered the TV pilot for a new Vampire themed, drama based on Justin Cronin’s book trilogy, “The Passage.”  According to Deadline, the new fantasy themed show comes from writer, Liz Heldens (Friday Night Lights), Felicity co-creator Matt Reeves, Ridley Scott’s, Scott Free and 20th Century Fox TV.  The show is written by Liz Heldens who is also on board as executive producer.  Also named as producers are Matt Reeves,  Adam Kassan via 6th & Idaho, Ridley Scott and David W. Zucker.

Fox gained the show some years back after a fierce bidding war between FOX and other studios. Originally, “The Passage” was going to be a feature film but that plan was later revised to be produced as a TV series. “The Passage” is the first book of a trilogy written by Justin Cronin. The Passage” was published in 2010 and was followed by The Twelve in 2012 and The City of Mirrors in 2016.
