The Wicked + The Divine is Being Adapted for Television

Wicked+Divine01_CoverADeadline has reported (and their post Tweeted by the creators) that the comic series The Wicked + The Divine is heading to television. The Image Comic series by Kieron Gillen, Jamie McKelvie, and Matt Wilson is being launched by Universal Television through the deal Universal struck with fellow comic creators Matt Fraction and Kelly Sue DeConnick‘s company Milkfed Criminal Masterminds. The deal between Fraction, DeConnick, and Universal has those two developing and adapting their own concepts, but also other comic creator’s ideas too.

The series is about gods as the ultimate pop stars. Every ninety years, twelve gods incarnate as humans. They are loved. They are hated. In two years, they are dead. Just because you’re immortal, doesn’t mean you’re going to live forever.

The Wicked + The Divine launched in June 2014 and was on 30 of the 202 different “best of” lists we tracked last year, including a few top spots. We gush about the series constantly.

Gillen has appeared on Graphic Policy Radio, which you can listen to here.
