Watch The Passage Trailer

Based on author Justin Cronin’s best-selling trilogy of the same name, The Passage is an epic, character-driven thriller written by Liz Heldens (“Friday Night Lights”). 

Executive-produced by Emmy Award winner and Academy Award and Golden Globe nominee Ridley Scott (“The Martian,” “Gladiator”) and writer/director Matt Reeves (“Dawn of the Planet of the Apes,” “Cloverfield”), The Passage focuses on Project Noah, a secret medical facility where scientists are experimenting with a dangerous virus that could lead to the cure for all disease, but also carries the potential to wipe out the human race. 

When a young girl, Amy Bellafonte (Saniyya Sidney, “Fences,” “Hidden Figures”) is chosen to be a test subject, Federal Agent Brad Wolgast (Mark-Paul Gosselaar, “Pitch”) is the man who is tasked with bringing her to Project Noah. Ultimately, however, Wolgast becomes her surrogate father, as he tries to protect her at any cost. Brad and Amy’s journey will force them to confront Project Noah’s lead scientist, Major Nichole Sykes (Caroline Chikezie, “The Shannara Chronicles”), and the hardened ex-CIA operative in charge of operations, Clark Richards (Vincent Piazza, “Boardwalk Empire,” “Rescue Me”), whom Brad trained. It likewise brings them face-to-face with a dangerous new race of beings confined within the walls of Project Noah, including former scientist Tim Fanning (Jamie McShane, “Bosch,” “Bloodline,” “Sons of Anarchy”) and death-row inmate Shauna Babcock (Brianne Howey, “The Exorcist”). In seeking out any allies he can find, Brad also turns to his former wife, Dr. Lila Kyle (Emmanuelle Chriqui, “Entourage,” “Murder in the First”), for help. But as Project Noah’s scientists hone in on a cure that could save humanity, these new beings begin to test their own powers, inching one step closer to an escape that could lead to an unimaginable apocalypse.

The Passage will debut midseason on FOX in 2019.

Vampire Drama Series The Passage Ordered At FOX

FOX has given a series order to the Mark-Paul Gosselaar (Nobodies) vampire drama The Passage, based on the bestselling book trilogy by Justin Cronin. FOX bought the film rights to the original novel before the work was published, but now they’re planning a small screen project.

The Passage, an “epic, character-driven thriller,” stars Gosselaar (Pitch, Franklin & Bash) as federal agent Brad Wolgast, who is charged with protecting a young girl named Amy (Saniyya Sidney) who’s the test subject for a new government virus. According to the official description, the virus “could either cure all disease or cause the downfall of the human race.” In Cronin’s trilogy, the virus triggers an outbreak of vampire-like beings that overrun the planet.

The Passage is written by Elizabeth Heldens (Friday Night Lights, Mercy) who will also serve as executive producer alongside film directors Ridley Scott (Alien: Covenant, The Martian) and Matt Reeves (Let Me In, The Batman).

The supporting cast includes Vincent Piazza (Boardwalk Empire), Brianne Howey (The Exorcist), Jamie McShane (Bloodline), Caroline Chikezie (The Shannara Chronicles), and Emmanuelle Chriqui (Entourage).
