HBO has scored a coup by landing the producer of the hottest movie of the season, the low-budget multi-million dollar grossing "Paranormal Activity" to co-executive produce a new series, Variety reports.
The producer, Jason Blum, will team with well-know scribe Bret Easton Ellis ("Less Than Zero," "American Psycho") on a TV series adaptation of "The Follower," by crime novelist Jason Starr, Variety says.
According to the report, "The drama is described as a dark social satire chronicling the dating lives of a group of twentysomething New Yorkers as seen through the eyes of a stalker. It was published by St. Martin’s Press late last year."
HBO will partner with Lionsgate TV on the project, Variety says.
