Saga and Paper Girls writer/co-creator Brian K. Vaughan has signed an overall development deal with Legendary Television Studios to adapt several of his creator owned works into television series and films.
Vaughan is no stranger to television; he's an executive producer on FX's adaptation of his series with Pia Guerra Y: The Last Man, serves as an executive consultant on Hulu's Runaways, based on the Marvel Comics series Vaughan co-created, and was also a writer on Lost.
Vaughan will also work with Legendary to develop original properties.
“Through truly inspired storytelling, Brian has created immersive, compelling worlds that are devoured by fans worldwide,” said Nick Pepper, President of Legendary Television Studios in statement (via Deadline). “We couldn’t be more thrilled to work with Brian to bring his visions and extraordinary library of work to the screen.”
“Legendary was instrumental in helping to revolutionize the way the world thought of ‘comic-book movies,’ so it’s a tremendous honor to work with them on adaptations of some of my and my talented collaborators’ past and current comics, and I’m looking forward to hopefully creating a few wholly original stories with them, as well.”
The specific adaptations planned as part of the deal were not disclosed.
