The Eisner Award nominated [easyazon_link identifier=”1632150190″ locale=”US” tag=”legoflei07-20″]The Wicked + The Divine[/easyazon_link] is breaking out to TV land!
Universal Television has optioned the rights to the property for Matt Fraction and Kelly Sue DeConnick’s new production company Milkfed Criminal Masterminds, whose plan is to be a launchpad for indie comics and other creator-owned IPs optioned for TV. Fraction and DeConnick will produce the project through their two-year deal with Universal TV.
The narrative focuses on a group of people with superhuman powers known as “The Pantheon”. Each member of The Pantheon was at one point a normal person before being chosen to merge with the spirit of a deity. It is said that each cycle of The Pantheon will not live past two years from the start of the series, and that every 90 years the Pantheon is reincarnated. — Wikipedia
