Former Comics Alliance Editor-in-Chief Laura Hudson has joined the writing team of HBO Max's DMZ TV series. New Gods co-writer/director Ava DuVernay is overseeing the adaptation as part of her overall deal with Warner Bros. Television.
"This may sound odd to those of you who remember my #MeToo story from a few months back, where I talked about my experiences with the original writer of the DMZ comic," Hudson tweeted, referring to series creator Brian Wood, who Hudson accused of sexual assault. "They happened many years ago when I was a nobody working at a comic bookstore."
"What you don’t know is that while sharing my story in 2019 was very unpleasant, it had an unexpected side effect: It put my body of work in the sightline of Ava DuVernay, the director of DMZ. She loved it. She found my number, called me, and offered me the staff writer position."
