ABC Family has teamed with producer Joel Silver to develop “I Hunt Killers,” a drama series based on Barry Lyga‘s young-adult novel, says Deadline.
The project, from Silver Pictures and Warner Horizon, “Centers on the teenage son of an imprisoned notorious serial killer, a likable boy who becomes a suspect after a string of copy-cat murders.”
It will be written by “Dexter” scribe Arika Mittman, which is appropriate as “I Hunt Killers” has a similar feel, but with a teenage twist. Silver executive produces, with Mittman serving as co-executive producer and Lyga as consultant.
“I Hunt Killers” was published by Little Brown this past spring, with a sequel, “Game,” set to come out next spring. The book was brought to Silver by the company’s feature department, and the project was set up at Warner Bros where Silver was under a deal.
