Summit Entertainment and E1 Entertainment will jointly develop and produce a television series based on Summit’s 2009 feature Push.

The series will be an extension of the sci-fi feature, which followed a group of people with paranormal powers who unite to bring down a corrupt government agency.

The deal strengthens the relationship established in 2007 between Summit and E1, under which E1 licenses exclusive UK and Canadian distribution rights to features produced by Summit.

Screenwriter David Hayter, who wrote Watchmen, The Scorpion King, X2: X-Men United and X-Men, will script the series pilot.
