Collective Digital Studio to Adapt ‘Maximum Ride’ Into a YouTube Mini-series

maximum rideCollective Digital Studio has acquired exclusive online rights to James Patterson’s Maximum Ride series. The studio intends to present this fantasy story as a YouTube mini-series.

This project would not mark the first time that Patterson’s popular young adult series has received the adaptation treatment. Yen Press has released seven volumes of Maximum Ride as a manga series with illustrations by artist NaRae Lee; three more installments are in the pipeline.

Here’s more from Variety: “The eight-book Maximum Ride series, which has sold more than 30 million copies, centers on six kids who have been genetically modified to be 98% human and 2% bird — giving them wings and the power of flight. Storyline follows the group, led by 14-year-old girl Maximum “Max” Ride, after they escape from the lab facility known as The School and are pursued by their former captors.” (via Page to Premiere)
