The sci-fi comic series Wretches from writer James E. Roche, artist Salomon Farias, and colorist Chunlin Zhao is on its way to the small screen. Publisher Scout Comics has announced the book is in development as a one-hour sci-fi adventure series from screenwriter Bianca Ursillo with Andy Cohen of Grade A Entertainment attached to executive produce. Scout Comics will also executive produce.
Alone on the tough streets of an alien city, far from the lifeless planet they once called home, siblings Shea and Sean spent their youth struggling to survive. Still suffering emotionally from the loss of everything they’d ever known and loved, Shea and Sean have nothing else in the universe but each other. Forever outrunning the horrors of their past, they survive the only way they know how- by hunting and killing sentient robots for profit! Now, when the rough path that they had no chance to follow finally catches up to them, will they be able to keep each other safe or will they lose the only important thing they have left, each other?
Wretches has an incredible world available to explore so it’s ripe for a TV adaptation. The first volume collecting the first six issues is coming soon.
