Mumbai: Amazon Studios has announced that it has ordered Cross for a series. From Paramount Television Studios and Skydance Television, Cross is being positioned as a complex, twisted, pulse-pounding thriller created by producer and writer Ben Watkins, based on the worldwide best-selling "Alex Cross" book series by James Patterson.

"Alex Cross" is a detective and forensic psychologist, uniquely capable of digging into the psyches of killers and their victims in order to identify—and ultimately capture—the murderers. Aldis Hodge (Black Adam, City On A Hill, One Night In Miami...) will play the titular character and also serve as a producer on the series. Cross will premiere on Prime Video in more than 240 countries and territories worldwide.

"Alex Cross" is brilliant, flawed, and full of contradictions. A doting father and family man, Cross is single-minded to the point of obsession when he hunts killers. He is desperate for love, but his wife’s murder has left him too damaged to receive it.

"James Patterson is among the best at captivating audiences with his undeniably enthralling novels, and we are confident that with Ben Watkins’ artistic vision, Cross will do the same for our global customers. We are proud to work with James and Ben alongside Paramount Television, Skydance, and the extremely talented Aldis Hodge, who we know will do an exceptional job of bringing Alex Cross to life," said Amazon Studios head of global television Vernon Sanders.
