NBC has ordered a pilot script for a series based on Mary Shelley's infamous horror yarn Frankenstein.

House M.D. executive producers Russel Friend and Garrett Lerner wrote the script, which is a modern day version of the Frankenstein mythos. The duo will likely be wrapping up their duties on House M.D.'s eighth and (presumed) final season, and may move directly into this new venture next.

Frankenstein is currently experiencing a resurgence, with quite a few projects based on the title going into production at this time. There is no indication how NBC's version of the story will differ from other iterations of the timeless tale.
