After nearly two years in development, WGN has ordered a pilot for a small-screen adaptation of Jason Aaron and R.M. Guera's Scalped series from DC/Vertigo. Star Trek Beyond screenwriter Doug Jung will reportedly be writing and executive producing the pilot, with DC Chief Creative Officer Geoff Johns also onboard as executive producer.
WGN is reputedly aiming to cast all Native Americans for the small-screen adaptation, attempting to stay true to the original comic book title.
If successful, this would be the third Vertigo series on television following the Fox's Lucifer and the CW's iZombie.
