Fox Redeveloping 'Zoobiquity' With 'Satisfaction' Creator
Fox is going back to Zoobiquity.
The network is redeveloping the procedural based on the best-selling book by Barbara Natterson-Horowitz and Kathryn Bowers.
The drama, first put in development a year ago with Bones' Stephen Nathan and Jon Collier attached to write, will now be penned by Satisfaction creator Sean Jablonski. Collier, Nathan and Spencer Medof (Cooties) — who was also attached to last season's version — will remain on board and exec produce the 20th Century Fox TV drama.
Jablonski's new version will have a different story and pairs a physician and a vet in a fast-paced and emotional workplace where they have to work together to save human and animal lives. The potential series follows a group of doctors as they look to the animal kingdom for help treating a variety of human aliments. Authors Natterson-Horowitz and Bowers are also attached to produce.
The news comes as Jablonski's sophomore USA Network drama Satisfaction is midway through airing its second season, all of which is streaming on USANetwork.com.
Jablonski is repped by WME and Underground.
