Mount Everest–Set Drama on Its Way

This photograph taken from an aircraft shows an aerial view of Mount Everest (C) and The Himalayan mountain range, some 140kms (87 miles) north-east of Kathmandu on April 3, 2013, on the 80th anniversary of the first manned flight over Mount Everest, the world's tallest mountain.  This year is the 60th anniversary of the first summit of the 8848-metre peak.    AFP PHOTO/Prakash MATHEMA        (Photo credit should read PRAKASH MATHEMA/AFP/Getty Images)

Fox is developing a mini-series called Everest, according to Deadline. The show is a scripted drama about a group of climbers scaling, yes, Mount Everest, although some have perhaps darker motives than simply "because it's there." The show is designed to be a ten-episode series that could be renewed for additional cycles. Kilimanjaro, anyone?
