Watch the trailer for the upcoming thriller series, coming to Fox
Based on author Justin Cronin’s best-selling trilogy of the same name, The Passage is an epic, character-driven thriller written by Liz Heldens (“Friday Night Lights”) coming to Fox.
The upcoming series focuses on Project Noah, a secret medical facility where scientists are experimenting with a dangerous virus that could lead to the cure for all disease, but also carries the potential to wipe out the human race. When a young girl is chosen to be a test subject, a federal agent is tasked with bringing her in, but ultimately, becomes her surrogate father, determined to protect her at any cost – even as Project Noah’s work threatens to unleash an unimaginable apocalypse.
“Now we’re talking,” says Slash Film after watching the trailer. “The Passage seems like an ambitious, character-driven sci-fi series with a pedigree to match.”
Executive producers include Scott Free Productions’ David W. Zucker, Ridley Scott, Matt Reeves, Adam Kassan, Liz Heldens, Marcos Siega, and Jason Ensler (The Exorcist) who also directed the pilot episode. Produced in partnership with Scott Free Productions, 20th Century Fox and 6th & Idaho.
Be sure to catch The Passage on Fox, set to premiere later this year.
