WYOMING — It’s not often that someone from Wyoming has the opportunity to create a TV show for a top American broadcast network. If you’ve been scrolling through your social media recently and a trailer for the show “Big Sky” popped up, then you’ve seen the premise behind the newest venture of successful Wyoming author C.J. Box.

The TV show is based on Box’s 2013 novel “The Highway” which is about a long-haul trucker who is a serial killer.

The show is being created by TV writer and producer David E. Kelley, who has also created shows such as “Big Little Lies,” “Boston Legal,” “Ally McBeal” and “Mr. Mercedes.” Kelley will write multiple episodes and serve as the showrunner for the first season.

C. J. Box is a #1 New York Times bestselling author of twenty-seven novels including the Joe Pickett series and will act as an executive producer on the series.

Big Sky debuts Nov. 17 on ABC.
