The book, first published in 1998, follows Connor Fitzgerald, a CIA assassin who falls victim to a conspiracy within the agency.
"Jeffrey Archer's storytelling is compelling, character driven and perfect for television," said Hurd. "[It's] full of fast-paced, high-stakes danger."
She added: "I'm thrilled to bring his books and the adventures of Connor Fitzgerald to life for audiences."
Archer himself added: "Gale Anne Hurd's amazing pedigree in bringing action-oriented entertainment to the screen puts her among the best in the business. I am delighted to be working with her."
Archer has worked as a novelist since 1976 and also served as a politician until he was jailed in 2001 for perjury and perverting the course of justice.
Hurd's credits include 1984 film The Terminator, 1997's Dante's Peak, 2008's The Incredible Hulk and her ongoing role as executive producer on AMC's zombie drama The Walking Dead.
She is also developing 17th century pirate drama Port Royal alongside Blood Diamond producer Graham King.
