Guillermo del Toro is putting the finishing touches on a deal to sell a television adaptation of his book series "The Strain" to FX, with "Lost" writer and executive producer Carlton Cuse signed on to help develop the drama project, according to The Hollywood Reporter’s Live Feed.

FX is close to giving a pilot order for "The Strain," about a vampire virus that infects New York and a CDC doctor who is investigating the disease, the story says.

Del Toro and Chuck Hogan, who co-wrote the three books with del Toro, will co-write the pilot, while Cuse will help develop the project if it goes to series and will also be the project’s showrunner and an executive producer, the story says.
