Deadline is reporting that Jason Aaron and Jason Latour's Image comic series Southern Bastards has been optioned for television by FX. Aaron and Latour will be executive producers and will adapt the series themselves.
"Jason & I will be very involved in anything that comes to TV there & are still very focused on our comics work. Especially Southern Bastards," Latour tweeted. "It's gonna be a mind boggling amount of work but it's really thrilling to take a new step. Cross your fingers y'all."
Southern Bastards tells the story of the son of a former sherriff coming home to deal with a corrupt football coach and his iron grip on the people of Craw County, Alabama.
