Not really the same premise. "The Strain" was about vampire-type creatures, not insects.Wait, didn't Guillermo Del Toro already do this with his FX Limited Series "The Strain"?

A TV reboot of the 1997 sci-fi horror film “Mimic” is in development at Miramax TV with Paul W.S. Anderson on board to direct the pilot and executive produce.
The series, an adaptation of Donald A. Wollheim’s short story of the same name, will be led by Jim Danger Gray who will write and serve as showrunner. Anderson’s longtime producing partner Jeremy Bolt will be an executive producer as well.
“Mimic” centers on genetically engineered insects who evolve and develop the ability to mimic their human prey. The 1997 film was co-written and directed by Guillermo del Toro and produced by Miramax’s Dimension Films label and Mira Sorvino, Jeremy Northam and Josh Brolin. The movie spawned a pair of direct-to-video sequels in 2001 (“Mimic 2”) and 2003 (“Mimic 3: Sentinel”).
