Dawn, the first book in Butler's Lilith's Brood series is being developed for TV by producer Allen Bain.
"Dawn" will be the first television series developed under Bain's new Bainframe sci-fi banner. The sci-fi novel is tells the story of the emending extinction of the human race with the only chance being mating with an alien species to create a new race.
The TV show will stick closely to the originally material Bain says. "I definitely want to stay true to the material and honor the legacy of Octavia Butler, because I think that's important and I do think that's possible in 2015. I think my predecessors have broken a lot of ground in television and the distribution channels have changed, so you can actually make TV now that you couldn't 15 years ago."
