Fox has ordered a pilot for Zoobiquity, an adaptation of the New York Times best-selling novel of the same name from Bones executive producers Jonathan Collier and Stephen Nathan (the latter of whom stepped back from the show this season to focus on other projects.)

According to the network,

"this light, unconventional medical procedural follows the unlikely pairing of a successful, driven cardiologist as she risks career suicide by teaming with a socially-challenged veterinarian who relates better to animals than people. They try to put aside their competitive natures to cure the incurable using a unique blend of cross-species medicine that's never been tried before."

Zoobiquity authors Barbara Natterson-Horowitz and Kathryn Bowers are non-writing producers on the project, and Spencer Medof is a non-writing executive producer. The pilot comes from 20th Century Fox Television.

This is the latest in Fox's pilot orders: They've previously picked up an Exorcist adaption, and original concepts A.P.B. and Recon.
