A 'Twilight' TV series is in the works.

Lionsgate Television is currently developing a TV adaptation of Stephenie Meyer's best-selling book series.

Sinead Daly - whose credits include 'Tell Me Lies' and 'The Walking Dead: World Beyond' - has been hired to write a script for the series, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Sinead is working with Lionsgate to establish whether the TV show should be a remake of the books, or whether it should go in an entirely different direction.

Lionsgate plans to lead the development of the project, before selling the rights to an established TV network.

However, the plans remain in their infancy and there's still no timeline for when the series will be sold to a network.

The 'Twilight' books previously inspired a money-spinning film series, which starred the likes of Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson and Taylor Lautner.

The series remains one the most successful film franchises of all time.

Last year, Kristen confessed to being surprised by the success of the 'Twilight' films.

The 33-year-old actress shot to global stardom as Bella Swan in the franchise - but Kristen admitted that she never expected the first film to take off in the way it did.

The Hollywood star - who appeared in the first 'Twilight' movie in 2008 - said on the 'Jess Cagle Podcast’: "I always want to remind people that [the first 'Twilight' movie was technically an indie] without diminishing it, or being like 'it was nothing!'

"We just did not know. And it was kind of like an oddball, slightly marginal teen movie. I didn’t think everyone was going to take to that. I didn’t think we were going to make a sequel."
