Fox Developing Insomnia Drama ‘NOD’

Fox has given a wake-up call to “NOD,” confirming it is developing a project based on the novel of the same name by Adrian Barnes about a world where much of humanity has lost the ability to sleep and scientists cannot explain why no one is tired.

The drama, which hails from Chernin Entertainment in association with 20th Century Fox Television, has a script plus penalty order. The main characters are Tanya and Paul, an “inter-somnial” couple: she, one of the so-called “Awakened” who is flourishing, and he, one of the remaining few who are still handicapped by the need for sleep. But when signs of deprivation start to show among the Awakened, the bonds of friendship and love get tested in unexpected ways.

Jason Richman (“Detroit 1-8-7,” “Lucky 7”) wrote the pilot and is exec producing with Chernin’s Peter Chernin and Katherine Pope. Richman is repped by WME and management company the Collective.
