The high-profile drama pilot from Liz Heldens and Matt Reeves had its production shifted to summer, due to the scope of the project needing a longer lead time. Having a second script ready to go will help move things along if the series is picked up for mid-season.
The Passage is a stirring tale that starts as a government conspiracy thriller and changes into a vampire-laden post-apocalyptic saga. It covers a century of time and focuses on a young girl named Amy who must save humanity. The first novel in the series was released in 2010.
Reeves is currently slated to direct The Batman and War for the Planet of the Apes. Heldens is the creator of Deceptions and Camp.
