According to Variety, Fox is developing an hour-long alien-themed TV show called Them
The show, from Jonathan Mostow (Terminator 3), David Eick (Battlestar Galactica) and John McNamara (Profit), involves a sleeper cell of extraterrestrial terrorists who take the shape of humans. Their mission is compromised when they start experiencing human emotions, which act like a drug on the aliens.
"On a surface level, it's a really cool science fiction thriller," Mostow said. "But underneath, it's a very provocative show that's really going to explore what it means to be human, to be a person."
Mostow is attached to direct and executive produce while Eick and McNamara are writing the script.
