Paramount Television and Anonymous Content have optioned Dean Koontz’s forthcoming book “The Silent Corner” with plans to turn it into a TV series. No network is currently attached.
Set to be published in June, the story revolves around FBI agent Jane Hawk, who investigates a wave of suicides of people of high talent and accomplishment who killed themselves for no apparent reason.
She soon becomes the most wanted fugitive in America after learning that a powerful cabal is behind things, and the group is completely unprepared for her wrath. Koontz reportedly plans to write at least five more books featuring Jane Hawk, with this being the first out.
Nicole Clemens and Steve Golin will executive produce.
Koontz has sold more than 500 million books worldwide with film and telemovie adaptions of his novels such as “Phantoms,” “Odd Thomas,” “Watchers,” “Intensity,” “Hideaway,” “Sole Survivor,” “Mr. Murder,” “Servants of Twilight” and “Demon Seed” having been turned into features or telemovies.
Some of his best works though, from the time travel love story “Lightning” to the Moonlight Bay trilogy have yet to be adapted.
