Fox is developing a one-hour drama based on Dean Koontz’s 1986 novel, “Strangers.”
The project, which has a script-plus-penalty commitment, will be penned by Jeff Davis, who created CBS’ longrunning “Criminal Minds” as well as MTV’s TV reboot of “Teen Wolf.” Koontz and Davis will executive produce, along with Josh Berman and Chris King.
Sony Pictures TV is on board as a co-producer, along with Berman’s Osprey Productions.

Here is the logline for the adaptation, per Fox:
“Strangers” tells the story of several different people, thousands of miles apart, from different walks of life, finding themselves struck by unusual fears and sudden phobias. A novelist in California suffers unbearable sleep terrors. In Boston, a surgeon’s intense panic attacks threaten her career. A priest in Chicago dreads the rise of the moon. An ex-Marine develops a paralyzing fear of the dark. They’re all connected by a forgotten trauma, repressed memories now surfacing and leading each of them to one destination: a small motel in Nevada where a dark secret lies hidden-one that could change the course of humanity itself.
