Fox is going into business with M. Night Shyamalan and Bruce C. McKenna as it eyes an entry into the longform arena in 2014.
The network announced Tuesday at the Television Critics Association's winter press tour that it is developing limited series Wayward Pines, from Shyamalan (The Sixth Sense) and Blood Brothers, from McKenna (Band of Brothers) with an eye on debuting at least one of the projects in 2014.
“With top-notch auspices and feature-quality production plans, Wayward Pines and Blood Brothers represent exactly the kind of high-impact, 10- to 12-part events we set out to develop when we entered the limited series business,” said Kevin Reilly, Chairman of Entertainment, Fox Broadcasting Company. “These two series are the first of many big ideas, big names and big talent that you can anticipate will be on our air in the next 12-24 months.”
