CBS is making a show that's basically The Birds, but instead of birds attacking humans, it's all of the animals across the globe attacking humans. All of them.

CBS has ordered 13 episode of the TV adaptation of James Patterson's totally wacky Zoo. The book is centered around an outbreak of organized animal attacks. The animals know something, and they're pissed! These are coordinated attacks against the human species, which just sounds so ridiculously terrible I cannot wait to watch it every single day. Here's the synopsis from Amazon:


All over the world, brutal attacks are crippling entire cities. Jackson Oz, a young biologist, watches the escalating events with an increasing sense of dread. When he witnesses a coordinated lion ambush in Africa, the enormity of the violence to come becomes terrifyingly clear.

With the help of ecologist Chloe Tousignant, Oz races to warn world leaders before it's too late. The attacks are growing in ferocity, cunning, and planning, and soon there will be no place left for humans to hide
