A 10-episode Gorillaz television series is in the works, according to co-creator Jamie Hewlett in an interview with Q (via Pitchfork). Although the exact quote from Hewlett is unavailable, Pitchfork relays that the Tank Girl co-creator said that the TV show follows a failed animated film being developed by DreamWorks Animation.
"It was too dark to spend a couple of hundred million dollars on," said Hewlett.
Although best known for his work with Damon Albarn on the Gorillaz, Hewlett originated in the British comic book scene. In 1998, Hewlett adn Alan Martin created Tank Girl for the upstart magazine Deadline. He also worked on 2000 AD, Shade the Changing Man, and Doom Patrol.
His Face strip Get the Freebies was adapted into a mixed live action/animated hybrid show for BBC titled Phoo Action.
The latest Gorillaz album, Humanz, is scheduled to go on-sale April 28.
