Octavia Butler's Kindred Coming to FX

The FX network has ordered a pilot for an adaptation of the science fiction novel "Kindred' by Octavia Butler...

From The Hollywood Reporter

FX's take on Kindred will center on Dana, a young Black woman and aspiring writer who has left her life of familial obligation and moved to Los Angeles. But before she can get settled into her new home, she finds herself being violently pulled back and forth in time to a 19th century plantation with which she and her family are most surprisingly and intimately linked. An interracial romance threads through her past and present, and the clock is ticking as she struggles to confront the secrets she never knew ran through her blood.
