Holy crapolies, Junkies — INFECTED has been optioned as a TV series by Timberman/Beverly, the company that produces JUSTIFIED, ELEMENTARY, MASTERS OF SEX and more. ARealGirl and I have sat down with Carl Beverly (who runs the company along with his partner Sarah Timberman), and he seems quite excited about bringing INFECTED to the small screen. Timberman/Beverly can also pick up options for CONTAGIOUS and PANDEMIC at any point, if they decide to use the characters and plotlines from either or both of those books.
Yay us! As a huge fan of JUSTIFIED, this is frickin’ awesome. We’re really pumped to see how Carl & Co. put the show together.
So, we’re officially optioned by a seriously kick-ass company that makes fantastic stuff. We’re optioned by a company that has hits on networks and on cable. We’re optioned by a company that will have seven different shows on TV this year, meaning they can get shit done.
Timberman/Beverly plans to start pitching INFECTED at the end of 2014. Keep your fingers crossed, Junkies. Great news to get at ComicCon for sure.
