TNT is dipping its toe into the monster genre with a "Frankenstein" series based on novels by best-selling author Dean Koontz.

James V. Hart (the 1992 "Dracula," "August Rush") and his son, Jake Hart, will write the pilot script for the show, Deadline reports, and James Hart will be an executive producer alongside Koontz.
