Michael Crichton’s ‘Dragon Teeth’ to Be Adapted as Limited Series by Nat Geo

”Jurassic Park“ author’s lost manuscript to be published as HarperCollins novel in 2017

Lost Michael Crichton manuscript “Dragon Teeth” has already been picked up for adaptation, and will become a miniseries on National Geographic channel, the cable network announced Saturday during their panel at the Television Critics’ Association’s summer press tour.

“Dragon Teeth” was recently unearthed from the “Jurassic Park” novelist’s archive, and HarpoerCollins will release the work in May 2017 in several English-speaking territories around the world.

“Dragon Teeth” follows the fictional apprentice to two rivals and real-life paleontologists, Edward Drinker Cope and Othniel Charles Marsh, during a period of wide fossil discovery (and forgery) in the late 1800s.

The manuscript was discovered by Sherri Crichton, the late author’s widow.

During the Nat Geo panel, the network also announced its first virtual reality documentary short, “The Protectors,” which follows African rangers who have to protect elephants from ivory poachers.
