Christopher Golden and Tom Sniegoski’s Boom! Studios comic book series Talent was at one point set to receive a feature film adaptation, but The Wrap is reporting out of the Television Critics Association’s Winter Press Tour today that the comics are instead headed to the small screen courtesy of Fox.
The site reports, “The broadcaster has given a script plus significant penalty commitment to the one-hour drama, with an eye to hand the project a straight-to-series order from “Justified” creator Graham Yost.”
In Talent, “When Nicole Dane wakes up in a hospital, she learns she is the sole survivor of a tragic accident that claimed the lives of 148 people. As rumors around her “miraculous” survival begin to swirl, Nicole discovers she has inherited the talents of those who perished. Armed with these new abilities, she must use her second chance to bring closure to their unfinished stories and solve the mystery of the accident, all while trying to escape a past that continues to haunt her.”
Yost will write and executive produce the series, with Neal Moritz, Pavun Shetty, Toby Jaffe, Stephen Christy and Ross Richie also executive producing.
Comic writers Christopher Golden and Tom Sniegoski will co-executive produce.
