FX has put in development Basilisk, a drama from former The Bastard Executioner and The Walking Dead writer Curtis Gwinn and The Hunger Games director Francis Lawrence.

Written by Gwinn, Basilisk is described as a gritty horror series that follows an atheistic college therapist and her computer-genius patient as they find themselves pulled into a plot to awaken a malevolent, god-like artificial intelligence.
