Former CDC virologist Nathan Taggat is forced to investigate the strange pathogenic suicide of a John Doe, who might hold the key to stopping a high-level government conspiracy."

ROCKY HORROR PICTURE SHOW EVENT, THE (FOX, New!) - The network is taking another stab at a remake of Jim Sharman and Richard O'Brien's 1975 cult classic, this time to be directed, executive-produced and choreographed by Kenneth Ortega. Production on the two-hour movie is casting-contingent. Lou Adler, who produced the original film, and The Jackal Group's Gail Berman are also attached as executive producers for Fox 21. The news marks the third time said duo have mounted similar efforts: in 2008 for MTV and back at FOX in 2002. (THR.com)
