CBS is looking to adapt another Stephen King novel, THE THINGS THEY LEFT BEHIND for TV. The Warner Bros. TV supernatural procedural will focus on an unlikely pair of investigators carrying out the unfinished business of the dead. CBS has given the project a put pilot commitment. “Pride and Prejudice and Zombies” scribe Seth Grahame-Smith has been tapped to pen the script for the show’s pilot. He will also executive produce with David Katzenberg, Greg Berlanti, and Sarah Schechter.
CBS is once again betting on King’s name and rep after their collaboration on the sci-fi drama “Under the Dome,” which is currently in its second season on the network. Grahame-Smith, too, seems to be a fan of King’s. He is signed on to produce clown horror flick “It,” which will be helmed by “True Detective” director Cary Fukunaga.
