Chris Fedak and Josh Schwartz made a geek favorite with their beloved but ratings-challenged series Chuck, and now they hope lightning can strike twice on the small screen. Chuck fans, rejoice—the boys behind the Intersect are coming back to TV.
Fedak and Schwartz hope to bring that Chuck charm to a new series based on the sci-fi fantasy book trilogy Midnighters, written by Scott Westerfeld.
Here's the official synopsis, via Deadline:
"[A] drama centered on a small group of people all born at the stroke of midnight who have access to the 25th hour of the day."Fedak is writing the pilot, with Schwartz attached to produce, and the series has a script commitment from Warner Bros.
Still no word on what network it could wind up at, but with Warner Bros. involved, The CW is always an option. Regardless, we're hopeful Fedak and Schwartz find a way to make it back to television.
What do you think of the premise? Could it support a solid series?
