More comics-to-television news emerging from SDCC today, as Hollywood Reporter gets the scoop:
The studio behind scripted fare including Weeds and Mad Men has emerged the winner in a six-studio bidding war for TV rights to Zenescope’s Wonderland graphic novels, The Hollywood Reporter has learned exclusively.
Brian Robbins (Smallville), through his first-look deal with Lionsgate TV, will serve as an executive producer on the project alongside Artist International’s Dave Brown and Zadoc Angell, who packaged and negotiated the pact along with Zenescope attorney Mark Temple on behalf of Zenescope Entertainment. Tedesco and Brusha will serve as co-executive producers.
For Robbins, the project comes after he produced the WB/CW’s Superman origin storySmallville. The adaptation of the DC Comics character ran for 10 seasons and ended its run last year.
“I was really drawn to the visuals; they’re dark, intense and sexual in a really provocative way,” Robbins tells THR of the graphic novels, which Beggs sent to him. “I love that it’s a mother-daughter story; that’s what really drew me to it. In the same way that [Smallville‘s] Clark [Tom Welling] had a similar relationship with his father, there’s a parallel here. It’s a really great retelling of the Wonderland story.
