Spike TV Plans "Pendergast" Series Adaptation

1 February 2016 7:55 AM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Spike TV and "The Walking Dead" producer Gale Anne Hurd are teaming for "Pendergast," a TV drama series adaptation of Douglas Preston and Lincoln Child's best-selling novel series following the character of FBI special agent Aloysius Pendergast.

In the novels the character is a highly intelligent, well-mannered, aloof and eccentric slender man who comes from a rich Louisiana family, most of whom are committed or deceased. His wife was killed by a lion years before in Africa, and his brother driven criminally insane during a traumatic childhood incident. Agent Pendergast usually investigates various serial killings, many of which have a highly unusual style to them.

Fifteen novels in the series have been published so far and dealt with everything from diamond heists and zombie cults to a genetically altered beast in the museum of natural history. The first novel in the series, "Relic," was adapted into the 1997 feature "The Relic" but omitted Pendergast's character, »
