Gun Honey Comic Series Gets Television Development

Gun Honey, the new 4-part comic book series launching in September 2021 by Charles Ardai, the Edgar and Shamus award winning author and co-founder of Hard Case Crime, is being developed for television by Piller/Segan, producers of Private Eyes, HavenGreek, Wildfire, and The Dead Zone, and Malaysia-based Double Vision, the production arm of the Vision New Media Group and the award-winning producers behind the acclaimed Asian adaptation of The Bridge.

Featuring interior art by Malaysian illustrator Ang Hor Kheng as well as two covers by legendary movie poster painter Robert McGinnis (creator of the posters for the original James Bond films), Gun Honey tells the story of Singapore-born weapons expert Joanna Tan, the best in the world at providing her clients with the perfect weapon at the perfect moment. When her new assignment leads to the escape of a brutal criminal from a high-security prison, Joanna is forced to track him down – and to confront secrets about her own past that will challenge her sense of who she is.

Gun Honey will be the second television collaboration between Hard Case Crime and Piller/Segan, who previously worked together to produce Haven, based on the first of three bestselling novels written for Hard Case Crime by Stephen King. Haven ran for six years on SyFy in the U.S. and was distributed in 185 territories worldwide.

Gun Honey #1 will be published worldwide by Titan Comics on September 22, 2021, with subsequent chapters following monthly and the compiled graphic novel in 2022.
