Looks like it’s back to the drawing board for Zoobiquity. According to the Hollywood Reporter, FOX is retooling their procedural drama based on Kathryn Bowers and Barbara Natterson-Horowitz’s best-selling book.
Published in 2013, the non-fiction book discusses the surprising connections between animal and human health.
FOX first announced it would be adapting the book a year ago, with Bones writing team Stephen Nathan and Jon Collier set to write. Both Nathan and Collier will still be a part of the production, but the pilot is now being written by Sean Jablonski, creator of USA Network’s Satisfaction.
The new story will feature a physician and a vet who team up “to save human and animal lives.”
What do you think? Have you read Zoobiquity? Would you watch this series?
This sounds like something many folks I associate with would look forward to. We often deal in veterinary medical issues and look to and extrapolate from human medicine to come up with treatment methods and surgical procedures for the animals we care for. It would be a delight to see how well it goes in the entertainment/educational venue !
