The Passage (not Saved by the Bell)

One of the best contemporary fiction reading experiences I’ve had over the last few years was with Justin Cronin’s The Passage.  The book was one of those rare “first in a trilogy” books that was so well-done that a continuation seemed almost unnecessary.

So I’m pleased to hear that FOX has picked up The Passage (with Mark-Paul Gosselaar as Wolgast) for a run this next season.  It’s been long enough that I don’t remember all of the details (and it’s no small book), so this trailer is engaging without giving too much away (or making too many easy call-backs).

FOX did a great job this past season with The Gifted, a comic book property that was basically X-Men without the X-Men.  If The Passage is anywhere near as good, as well-paced and well-acted, then it should be a great television experience.
