RESURRECTION, Based on the Book

The Returned   The Returned, Paperback

The ABC series Resurrection, based on The Returned, Jason Mott’s debut novel, published in late August (Harlequin/MIRA; Brilliance Audio; Thorndike), debuts on Sunday, March 9th.

About how people in a community would react if dead people suddenly returned to their loved ones, the book was a LibraryReads pick. It was widely reviewed (USA Today was particularly admiring) and appeared on the NYT best seller list for two weeks, hitting a high of #16. A trade paperback, with tie-in cover art, is set for release in March (Harlequin, 9780778317074).

Why is the title of the series  different from the book? To avoid confusion with a French series, also about dead people returning, which aired on the Sundance Channel recently with the English title The Returned.

A new promo for the series began airing over the holidays:
