Former Justified showrunner Graham Yost is adapting Christopher Golden and Tom Sniegoski's BOOM! Studios' Talent as a one-hour drama series for Fox, according to Deadline.

Talent tells the story of a young woman who is the only survivor of a plane crash, who discovers she's absorbed the talents of those who died in the accident.

Talent was previously in development as a film with Sony Pictures by Fast & Furious producer Neil Moritz, who will also serve as one of the show's executive producers alongside Golden and Sniegoski, with Yost serving as showrunner.

“When I first read Talent, I was immediately hooked, as it took me on an incredible journey I’ll never forget," said Fox Broadcasting President of Entertainment Michael Thorn in a statement. "This project accomplishes two professional goals of mine: work again with Graham Yost, one of the finest creators in the business; and transition Talent from feature development into the world to television. In Graham, Neal Moritz, Sony and BOOM!, we have the perfect partners who have the vision to bring this fantastic story and its characters to life as we take these important steps in building future Fox.”

“I am very excited to be adapting this wonderful graphic novel. I think this could be a thrilling, emotional and, if I don’t blow it, thought-provoking show," added Yost. "It’s great to be working with Charlie Collier, Michael Thorn and the team at Fox.”

No projected release date for Talent on Fox was announced.
