‘Deprivers’ gets TV pact

TBS, Mandalay, Sony to develop sci-fi pic

TBS Superstation, Mandalay Entertainment and Sony Pictures Television have pacted to develop a two-hour movie based on Steven-Elliot Altman’s forthcoming novel “The Deprivers.”

“Deprivers” is based on a sci-fi short story concerning an epidemic called Deprivers Syndrome. Human contact with one of the syndrome’s victims results in the loss of a sense, such as sight or hearing. The novel is to be published by Putnam.

The TBS pic centers on an assassin who is a “Depriver”; he can immobilize people but doesn’t realize he’s one of “them.”

Altman will write the screenplay with Andy Wolk.
