According to new reports, Fox is developing a TV series about the 2013 Boston Marathon bombing.
The as-yet-untitled show will be based on the book Long Mile Home by Boston Globe reporters Scott Helman and Jenna Russell, Deadline reported.
The TV project follows the true stories of five people whose lives were changed forever in the tragedy and the week that followed.

The series will be written and directed by The Contender director Rod Lurie.
Visiting Boston ahead of this year’s marathon, Rod Lurie said it was “a big beautiful city… with a bounce-back population that takes care, not just of its own, but others as well”.
Rod Lurie told Deadline he had already begun writing the script.
“It’s hard to imagine a story in which an entire community caught a couple of criminals like Boston did. In this case, the accurate story is a phenomenal story,” he said.
Bombing suspect Dzokhar Tsarnaev is due to stand trial in November for allegedly setting off two pressure cooker bombs with his older brother Tamerlan, who later died in a police shootout.
Three people were killed and more than 260 injured in last year’s Boston Marathon bombings.

“Week in and week out … the entire Glee team deliver a series that not only delights and surprises fans, but also inspires them to talk about, share, debate and engage with the show – and I’m absolutely thrilled to have them on board for another two seasons.”
The current season features some of the school’s graduated seniors, played by Lea Michele and Chris Colfer, scattering from Ohio to New York City.
Glee is averaging 8.7 million viewers this season, including viewing delayed up to 7 days. That’s down from last season but the show remains one of Fox’s most popular as it weathers a steep decline by American Idol.
A four-week-old baby boy from London, UK, was dragged from his cot by a fox before the animal tore his finger off.
The child was asleep in his cot when his mother, in the next room, heard a piercing scream then a heavy thud as the baby was flung to the floor.
Local residents said the family had moved from the home in Bromley, Kent, following the attack on Wednesday and the house appeared empty today.
Council chiefs said the incident was “very tragic but rare”.
When the baby’s mother heard the screams from her son’s room, she ran in to find his hand lodged “halfway down the animal’s throat”. She fought desperately to release him, repeatedly kicking the fox until it eventually let go.
Surgeons later reattached the baby’s finger in an “extremely difficult” but successful three-hour operation.
“The baby is recovering well,” said a source.

The child also suffered puncture wounds to the face in what is believed to be the worst attack of its kind in Britain.
The fox had crept into the house through an open back door, which was apparently awaiting repair by the council.
The horrific attack in suburban Bromley, South-East London, has revived the debate over culling urban foxes.
Neighbors said foxes have been a “menace” in the area and are now worried about the safety of their own children.
Some experts believe there are now more than 10,000 foxes living close to humans in London. At the end of winter, when numbers are lowest, there are 258,000 adult foxes in Britain, of which 33,000 are in urban areas.
