Third time's the charm?

Chris Fedak and Josh Schwartz (the creators of the TV show Chuck) are making the third attempt to turn Scott Westerfeld's Midnighters trilogy into a TV series. This time, Fedak will be the sole writer, with Schwartz producing. According to io9, the project is in the "script commitment" phase, which means they'll write a pilot script but nothing is guaranteed beyond that.

Apparently, the first attempt to televise this story dried up when the producers wanted to "age-up" the characters to their mid-twenties, but, as Westerfeld pointed out, "Twenty-six year olds who... stay up till midnight!" isn't the world's strongest premise.
