ABC has bought Evolve, a sci-fi project about a disaster that locks off Los Angeles. When the government supposedly encounters a biological toxin within the large city, the town is closed up, with no outsiders let in--at least, until a group of brave souls try to get to the bottom of the contamination, which may not be a contamination, after all. Maybe it's a power black-out? No, no, that's not it.
Evolve is based on the Toxic City novels by Tim Lebbon--the first of which hit stores in October. That's a pretty fast adaptation turnaround.
Proyas's last essay into television was as an executive producer on the first unsold Riverworld back-door pilot for what was then Sci Fi.
