Lin, Hurwitz To Adapt “Orphan X” To Series

Makeready has landed the screen rights to Gregg Hurwitz’s bestselling five-book “Orphan X” novel series with plans to adapt the thrillers into a TV series.

The story follows Evan Smoak, who after being pulled from his home at the age of 12 is trained in the Orphan Program as a secret government assassin.

After he escapes the program he creates a new life for himself, until he is forced to complete one last mission: saving the final Orphan from being wiped out by the group that organised the project.

Justin Lin’s Perfect Storm Entertainment will co-produce the project which Hurwitz will co-write and executive produce with Lin, Scott Nemes and Danielle Woodrow.
