FX Beaming Up John Scalzi's 'Redshirts' as a Limited Series

FX will expand its lineup with an adaptation of Redshirts, the comedic sci-fi novel by author John Scalzi.

The book, which tackles tropes from the original Star Trek series, follows the adventures of Intrepid ensign Andrew Dahl, who quickly realizes he and his ilk are basically cannon fodder. The novel gets meta from there, as Dahl and company discover they're actually characters on a TV show. The novel won a Hugo Award in 2013.
