FOX has handed out a pilot order for a series adaptation of Barbara Natterson-Horowitz’s best-selling book “Zoobiquity,” just days after rival CBS greenlit the similar sounding medical drama “Bunker Hill”.
“Zoobiquity” is an unconventional medical procedural follows the pairing of a successful cardiologist risking career suicide teaming with a socially challenged veterinarian who relates better to animals than people. Putting aside their competitive natures, the pair try to cure the incurable using a unique blend of cross-species medicine that’s never been tried before.
This marks the third attempt at developing the project following Jon Collier and Stephen Nathan (“Bones”) coming up with the first take, being replaced by “Satisfaction” creator Sean Jablonski for the second, and then Collier and Nathan returning for this third version which they will pen the script for and will executive produce alongside Spencer Medof.
FOX has numerous procedurals in the works for next season including “Recon,” “A.P.B.,” “Shots Fired,” “Pitch” the return of “Prison Break” and “24,” an untitled Lee Daniels music drama and a serialised take on “The Exorcist”.
