Chuck Creators Adapting Midnighters Trilogy For Fox
Chuck creators Chris Fedak and Josh Schwartz are re-teaming for what they hope will be another television hit. However, this time, instead of an original series, The Live Feed reports the two will tackle an adaptation of Scott Westerfeld’s Midnighters book trilogy.
The Midnighters series follows the adventures of 15-year-old Jessica Day as she discovers she’s a Midnighter and able to access the Blue Time, an extra hour in the day that exists for people born at midnight. Far from the only Midnighter, Jessica finds herself allying with her fellow travelers against creatures called darklings and slithers.
Fox ordered a pilot from Fedak and Schwartz. If the network likes the effort, you could be seeing a Midnighters series on the air next season.
