Thomas Caplan’s Ty Hunter series of novels about a military badass-turned-movie star-turned-spy might be going to the small screen. Producer Garth Ancier is in talks with Caplan to develop the series for television, with Trevor Donovan (History’s Texas Rising) attached to the series in the lead role.

The books follow movie star Ty Hunter, an A-list idol whose past as a covert operative leads to his recruitment by the President of the United States to stop the trafficking of illicit nuclear weapons, re-igniting a clandestine career where Hunter’s fame becomes his cover. The first book, The Spy Who Jumped Off the Screen, was released in 2012 with a forward by former President Clinton. The proposed series would be based on The Man Who Wasn’t, the upcoming second book.

Donovan is repped by manager Michael Yanni and APA.
