ABC is working on a project from Jaime Paglia, the co-creator and executive producer of Syfy’s long-running show "Eureka," with "I, Robot" director Alex Proyas tapped to direct and executive produce, reports Deadline.com.
The project, called "Evolve," is based on the "Toxic City" trilogy by author Tim Lebbon. It’s set two years after an unknown biological agent is released over Los Angeles, and the city has been sealed off from the rest of the world. A group of civilians living outside the quarantine area decide to try to find out what has happened to loved ones who are living inside the cordoned-off zone.
ABC Studios is producing the project.
