Best-selling author James Patterson has reached a deal to turn his young adult book franchise "Maximum Ride" into an Internet video series that will be released on YouTube. Patterson sold exclusive online rights for "Maximum Ride" to Collective Digital Studio (CDS), a production company and operator of YouTube channels, according to a statement released on Wednesday. The eight "Maximum Ride" books, which have sold more than 30 million copies, tell the story of children who are genetically modified with bird DNA and can fly. CDS plans to start its online series with six to 10 episodes that are each about 10 minutes long, said Gary Binkow, partner and chief content officer for CDS. less
