Dean Koontz’s bestselling novel Strangers is set to become a new drama series at FOX, according to THR. The drama series will be adapted from the book by Teen Wolf showrunner Jeff Davis. He will be writing the pilot for the Strangers series. The show will be a co-production between Sony Pictures Television and Fox.
Koontz will be an executive producer on the Strangers series alongside Davis, Josh Berman for Osprey Productions, and Chris King.
Amazon describes the book Strangers as follows: “A writer in California. A doctor in Boston. A motel owner and his employee in Nevada. A priest in Chicago. A robber in New York. A little girl in Las Vegas. They’re a handful of people from across the country, living through eerie variations of the same nightmare.
“A dark memory is calling out to them. And soon they will be drawn together, deep in the heart of a sprawling desert, where the terrifying truth awaits…”
The book was published in 1986 by Putnam. Strangers is the story of a group of people who have found each other through their very strange illnesses, including somnambulism, fugue state and nyctophobia.
Dean Koontz has had 14 hardcovers and 14 paperbacks hit number one on The New York Times Bestseller List. He’s also written under the pen names David Axton, Leigh Nichols and Brian Coffey. He’s sold over 450 million copies of books he’s written.
