Animals rebel against humanity in Zoo; CBS to air series in 2015

A TV series about animals attempting to take back the globe? I'd tune in!

CBS has just ordered 13 episodes of "Zoo", which is based on James Patterson and Michael Ledwidge's novel of the same name. The adaptation was penned by Jeff Pinkner (Fringe), Josh Appelbaum (Life on Mars, Star-Crossed), Andre Nemec (Star-Crossed) and Scott Rosenberg (Life on Mars), all of whom will executive produce as well.

Here's the book's synopsis:

All over the world, brutal attacks are crippling entire cities. Jackson Oz, a young biologist, watches the escalating events with an increasing sense of dread. When he witnesses a coordinated lion ambush in Africa, the enormity of the violence to come becomes terrifyingly clear.

With the help of ecologist Chloe Tousignant, Oz races to warn world leaders before it's too late. The attacks are growing in ferocity, cunning, and planning, and soon there will be no place left for humans to hide.

The plan is to air "Zoo" at some point next summer. CBS likes being in the summer sci-fi game, obviously, as they're currently airing "Under the Dome" and the Halle Berry mind-bender "Extant".
