Fox developing ‘The Family Gene’ produced by Jim Parsons


Fox will be developing The Family Gene produced by Jim Parsons!

Fox has put in development The Family Gene, a genomic medicine drama inspired by Joselin Linder’s nonfiction book The Family Gene: A Mission To Turn My Deadly Inheritance Into A Hopeful Future, from Jim Parsons and Todd Spiewak’s That’s Wonderful Productions and Warner Bros. TV.

Written and executive produced by Canadian writer Greg Spottiswood (Remedy), The Family Gene follows Dr. Gwendolyn Langer as she saves lives in a cutting edge clinic that brings together high stakes medical procedures with the miraculous advances of genetic medicine. Langer takes every case personally – because she and her sister, surgeon Evie Langer, have inherited a deadly disease of their own. Each week, The Family Gene takes on compelling and emotional medical mysteries, as Gwen and her team refuse to accept that DNA is destiny. The book was inspired by Linder’s personal quest to discover the truth about a likely fatal genetic disorder.
