Pilot Season Placeholder

Fox is looking to the animal kingdom for high drama, cutting a deal to adapt the best-selling nonfiction book “Zoobiquity” into a series.

“Bones” alum Stephen Nathan and Jon Collier are penning the adaptation of the 2012 book about the links between animals and human health issues by cardiologist Barbara Natterson-Horowitz and health writer Kathryn Bowers. That foursome will exec produce, with Spencer Medof also on board as EP.

The 20th Century Fox TV series will revolve around a dynamic group of doctors helping to treat patients by searching for correlations in the animal world. Project has a script-plus-penalty order from the network.

Nathan and Collier at present are exec producers on the tenth season of Fox’s “Bones.”

Nathan, Medof, Natterson-Horowitz and Bowers are repped by WME. Collier is with UTA.

    I’d bet this is less about Bones ending and more about the network capitalizing on the show’s successful format. Show runners develop and run multiple series all the time. I think Fox building a companion series to Bones makes a lot of sense. This could be really cool.

    Guess we dont need to see the writing on the wall, the showrunners are abandoning ship. It was a good run, free David and Emily to star in another series.

  3. Liz says:

    Fox haven’t said anything about this being the final season of Bones. Are you announcing it for them or in need of fact checking?

  4. um Final season? where do you get your info from? Im a longtime bones fan and no one from fox has said anything about this being the last season. get your facts straight before posting for now on!

  5. Linda says:

    Final season of Bones? I haven’t heard any official notification of that! You may have an angry Bones fandom in an uproar…

  6. Alex says:

    Final Season? As this hasn’t been announced and in fact Stephen Nathan was saying the opposite in recent interviews, you may want to clarify that point.

  7. Mina says:

    Wow, so season 10 is the final season of Bones? I had not heard that announced yet. In fact, up until now all indications were that Fox, the producers, and the cast were interesting in continuing.

    It might have been nice for this info to gave been shared with the long-time diehard fans instead of coming out this way.

    Where did you get the information of Bones final season?? You may have upset a very noisy fandom if this is incorrect!!
