The news was leaked yesterday by The Hollywood Reporter, much to all involved's surprise apparently. (The announcement is HERE.)
Vertigo’s Fables may soon be translated to television as ABC has committed to a pilot for an hour-long drama series based on the comic book.
The pilot for the Fables television series will be produced by Warner Bros. TV and written by Six Degrees' Stu Zicherman and Raven Metzner, who describe themselves as "lifelong comic book fans" that fell in love with the Fables comic when it debuted in 2002.Newsarama also talked to Bill Willingham about his thoughts on Fables going to TV.
NRAMA: Do you like the idea of Fables being a TV series? Do you see it as something that would work for episodic television?
BW: Well, I think it's probably better suited to an episodic presentation on TV than it is to, like, a major motion picture. That said, I would have loved to see the scope of a feature film.You can read the whole article and interview HERE.2010 looks like it's going to be FULL of fairy tales on all fronts. :D
