AMC/AMC Studios and Eisner-award winner Rob Guillory (Chew) are giving the phrase “organ harvesting” a much more literal meaning, teaming up to bring his best-selling Image Comics comic book series Farmhand to series. Guillory will pen the pilot for the series, and will serve as executive producer along with LaToya Morgan (The Walking Dead, Into the Badlands).
“I couldn’t be more thrilled to bring Farmhand to AMC. I knew if I was ever going to adapt Farmhand, I’d need partners whose bold vision preserved and complemented my own, and I’ve found that with LaToya Morgan and the fine folks at AMC. Their enthusiasm for this project has been absolutely infectious, and I think together we’re going to make a show that is very unique and very special.”

Originally published by Image Comics in July 2018, Farmhand follows Jedidiah Jenkins, a simple farmer, but one whose cash crop isn’t corn or soy. He grows fast-healing, plug-and-play human organs. For years, Jed’s organic transplants have brought healing to many, but deep in the soil of the Jenkins Family Farm something sinister has taken root.
Guillory previously co-created and was the Eisner-award winning artist on the New York Times bestselling series Chew.
