Telemystery: ABC Family Adapting Barry Lyga's I Hunt Killers for Drama Series

Telemystery: Mystery and Suspense on Television

ABC Family is developing a television series adaptation of Barry Lyga's young adult novel I Hunt Killers. Akira Mittman (Dexter) will write the screenplay, which (as Deadline wryly points out) is appropriate given that the novel has a similar Dexter-esque twist to it … albeit at a teenaged level.

Lyga has written a sequel to the book, Game, which will be published next Spring by Little, Brown.

I Hunt Killers
Barry Lyga
A Jazz Dent Thriller (1st in series)

It was a beautiful day. It was a beautiful field. Except for the body …

Jazz is a likable teenager. A charmer, some might say.

But he's also the son of the world's most infamous serial killer, and for Dear Old Dad, "Take Your Son to Work Day" was year-round. Jazz has witnessed crime scenes the way cops wish they could — from the criminals' point of view.

And now, even though Dad has been in jail for years, bodies are piling up in the sleepy town of Lobo's Nod. Again.

In an effort to prove murder doesn't run in the family, Jazz joins the police in the hunt for this new serial killer. But Jazz has a secret — could he be more like his father than anyone knows?
