Writer Kurt Busiek and artists Brent Anderson and Alex Ross's Astro City is in development for television with American Gods production company FremantleMedia.

Astro City focuses on a city where superheroes are a part of daily life, and has been published off and on through both Image and DC Comics since 1995.

Busiek will write the pilot alongside screenwriter Rick Alexander, while Gregory Noveck will serve as executive producer.

“It’s a thrill to be working with Rick, Gregory and FremantleMedia on this,” said Busiek in a statement. “Everyone, at every turn, is supportive, helpful and completely focused on capturing the feel of Astro City and bringing it to life as a TV show.”
