Seventh Day Adapted Into A TV Series

Televisa has acquired rights to Scott Shepherd’s serialized post-apocalyptic sci-fi thriller novel “The Seventh Day” and have ordered a ten episode series adaptation of the work.

Set seven years after the Strangers decimated the planet and wiped out most of humanity, the story follows Joad on his dangerous trek home to Nemo in the hope his wife waits for him.

The journey with companions he reluctantly gains along the way takes them through a landscape equally beautiful and haunting, mysterious and magical.

Shepherd and Cindy McCreery are set to pen the scripts and serve as showrunners, while Lloyd Segan will executive produce. Subsequent seasons will be based on future books written by Shepherd.
