This is a premise parents of unruly teen kids can relate to — a series about a world where youths are quarantined after a mysterious virus makes adults allergic to teenagers. The CW has bought the spec, titled Sick. Described as a provocative cross between Contagion and The Hunger Games, it centers on a band of teens who escape from their containment units and go on the run from authorities. Trey Callaway and Sean Hood wrote the script, which was sold directly to the CW. ICM Partners-repped Callaway is currently the co-executive producer of CSI: NY and also is developing the drama Help Wanted for TNT. APA-repped Hood is best known for his genre work on Halloween: Resurrection, Fear Itself and Masters Of Horror.
