'Walking Dead' Executive Producer Adapting Alien Project for Syfy THR

"The Walking Dead" executive producer Gale Anne Hurd is adapting Whitley Strieber's best-selling novel "Alien Hunter" for Syfy, The Hollywood Reporter's Live Feed reports.

Called "Hunters," the project is about a Pennsylvania detective who becomes a suspect in his wife's disappearance. While trying to find her and prove his innocence, he finds evidence that aliens are living on Earth, the story says.

Hurd told the publication: "It's based on Whitley Strieber, who's most well-known for 'Communion.' He's a person incredibly well spoken, incredibly bright and incredibly knowledgeable. He had an encounter, and it changed his life -- in good ways and in not so good ways."
