Warner Bros. TV has acquired rights to young-adult novel “I Hunt Killers” and plans to develop the project as a series with producer Joel Silver.
“Killers,” written by Barry Lyga and scheduled to be published by Little Brown in April, concerns a teenager whose father is a jailed serial killer. Using his own knowledge, the teen tracks down other serial killers while remaining wary of his own potentially murderous impulses.
Hotchkiss & Associates, Anderson Literary Management and attorney Tom Collier of Sloan, Offer, Weber and Dern helped broker the deal.
