Deadline reports that FX has begun developing John Scalzi’s Hugo Award–winning novel Redshirts for a limited event series. The comedic sci-fi novel takes place on the Starship Intrepid in the 25th century. The story follows five new shipmates who notice that crew members die very fairly often. It appears a 21st-century TV show has encroached on their reality, subjecting these characters to the whims of the show’s producers. It’s kind of like a reverse Galaxy Quest. Who will be today’s Tim Allen? Start practicing your grunt, young Hollywood.
