CBS Planning “Dr. Moreau” TV Series

“Sleepy Hollow” creator Phillip Iscove will next tackle a TV series adaptation of the classic H.G. Wells book “The Island of Dr. Moreau” for CBS.

The story shifts the story to the modern era and switches the gender of the title character – centering on the fiercely intelligent and fearless Dr. Katherine Moreau.

This Moreau uses a privately funded island hospital to expand the boundaries of medicine through bold and revolutionary scientific experimentation and treatments.

The original 1896 book followed a man shipwrecked on an island where he finds a scientist who creates human-like hybrid beings from animals.

The series has a script commitment which Iscove will pen and executive produce. Frank Marshall and Robert Zotnowski will also executive produce.
