Fox is developing a pair of miniseries. Or, since "miniseries" is a bad word in television these days, "long-form event series."
The two projects, at least one of which will air in 2014, are "Wayward Pines," a thriller executive produced by M. Night Shyamalan, and "Blood Brothers," about the West Point class of 1861 that was divided by the Civil War.
"'Wayward Pines' and 'Blood Brothers' represent exactly the kind of high-impact, 10- to 12-part events we set out to develop when we entered the limited series business," Fox Entertainment chairman Kevin Reilly says. "These two series are the first of many big ideas, big names and big talent that you can anticipate will be on our air in the next 12 to 24 months."
"Wayward Pines" is based on the novel "Pines" by Blake Crouch. Fox name-checks "Twin Peaks" in its description of the story about a Secret Service agent who travels to Wayward Pines, »
