The Strain book trilogy is a bioterror thriller with fangs, telling the story of an outbreak in the U.S. of a virus that either kills those who are exposed to it or turns them into vampires. The first of the series came out in June. The plan is to shop the TV project, envisioned as an event series unfolding over three seasons, early next year after the second book is released.
Grady Twins, the production company formed earlier this year by TV vets Marti Noxon ("Buffy the Vampire Slayer") and Dawn Parouse Olmstead ("Prison Break"), is named for the murdered twin girls who haunt the Overlook Hotel in Stephen King's book and Stanley Kubrick's film The Shining.
As evidenced by Grady Twins' initial batch of projects, Noxon and Parouse Olmstead aim to cast a wide net as producers. And they're committed to live by the maxim that "we don't want to be doing anything that we don't have a passion for," Noxon said.
