Hulu to Adapt Giannis Milonogiannis’s Old City Blues with Kerry Washington Starring, Gore Verbinski Directing

Hulu will bring to life Old City Blues, the graphic novel series created by Giannis Milonogiannis at Archaia, the only imprint of BOOM! Studios without an explosion-based pun for its name. Scandal’s Kerry Washington will executive produce and star in the series, alongside executive producer and director Gore Verbinski. The pilot is written by Arash Amel, and further executive producers include Brad Weston, Scott Nemes, Ross Richie, and Stephen Christy.

Here’s what the series is about:

Set in the near future, the graphic novel series follows the men and women of the New Athens police force. Built in the aftermath of a disastrous flood on the ruins of the country once known as Greece, New Athens is a new independent city created and wholly owned by technology giant Hayashi Corporation. When the cybernetically augmented founder of Hayashi is found murdered, it seems to be just another case of cyborg persecution. But Hayashi Corporation’s strange response to the incident raises the suspicions of lead detective and the Special Police. The mystery they unravel will leads them straight into the wasteland of the Old City.

About Jude Terror

A prophecy says that in the comic book industry's darkest days, a hero will come to lead the people through a plague of overpriced floppies, incentive variant covers, #1 issue reboots, and super-mega-crossover events.

Scourge of Rich Johnston, maker of puns, and seeker of the Snyder Cut, Jude Terror, sadly, is not the hero comics needs right now... but he's the one the industry deserves.
