CBS Orders ‘Zoo’ Based on James Patterson’s Best Seller for Summer 2015

CBS is looking ahead to Summer 2015 with the 13-episode, straight to series order of Zoo, based on a best seller by James Patterson. Zoo will continue CBS’ theme of filling their summers with genre programming as the series follows a wave of vicious animal attacks on humans all across the world. As the attacks increase and become more coordinated in nature, a young biologist will have to race against time to discover why the animals are becoming violent and how to stop them.

“ZOO further demonstrates our commitment to high-quality, year-round programming and to high-concept series that play to summer audiences in the U.S. as well as on a global scale,” said Nina Tassler, Chairman, CBS Entertainment. “With this #1 bestseller coming to television, we’re excited to give our viewers a thrill ride with another blockbuster summer event.”
