FX Developing a TV Series Based on Y: The Last Man
FX is currently working on a TV show based on Y: The Last Man, the hit graphic novel by writer Brian K. Vaughan. He’ll be joining up with Nina Jacobson and Brad Simpson of Color Force, a studio famous for creating movies out of novels (The Hunger Games, for example). They’re also searching for one more writer to help Vaughan flesh out the story into a TV show.
For those of you who don’t know, Y: The Last Man is a series of graphic novels revolving around a singular premise: a mysterious virus has killed all men on Earth except for one man. It’s an amazing novel, one that you absolutely should pick up reading now, with a really gripping story that explores the dynamics of gender roles in a world where there are no more men.
Anyway, here’s how we reacted to this news:
So. You know we’re excited for this one.
