Fox Developing a Bones Spinoff


Fox is working on a Bones spinoff, starring a character who would be introduced on this season of the show before getting his own series next season. (Fox tried to create a House spinoff using exactly this strategy two years ago, but ultimately didn’t green-light it.) The show would star Walter “The Locator” Sherman,” a former soldier who suffered brain damage, and now asks inappropriate questions and has an uncanny ability to locate stuff. So, like Bones, a show about a socially awkward genius. Ben Affleck and Matt Damon may soon have another series to kick around! [Deadline]
