Deadline reports on a new series about a world where youths are quarantined after a mysterious virus makes adults allergic to teenagers.
The CW has bought the spec, titled “Sick.”
Described as a provocative cross between Contagion and The Hunger Games, it centers on a band of teens who escape from their containment units and go on the run from authorities. It also sounds a bit like Battle Royale, which CW had originally planned as a series.
Trey Callaway and Sean Hood – best known for his genre work on Halloween: Resurrection, “Fear Itself” and “Masters Of Horror” – wrote the script.
