As reported by The Hollywood Reporter, Vault Comics’ series Resonant is to be adapted for television by CBS Studios, Ridley Scott’s Scott Free Productions, and “First Purge” director Gerrard McMurray.
To be shown on the BET+ streaming platform, McMurray will executive produce, write, and direct show. Vault CEO and Publisher Damian Wassel and Vault’s Head of Film & Television, F.J. DeSanto, will be executive producers alongside Ridley Scott, David W. Zucker, Jordan Sheehan, and Clayton Krueger for Scott Free.
“RESONANT is the Vault horror series co-created by writer David Andry and artists Alejandro Aragon and Skylar Patridge. In RESONANT, A decade has passed since the first Waves hit, unleashing humanity’s darkest impulses and plunging the world into chaos. Paxton, a single father of three, must venture from the secluded haven they’ve built to restock the medicine his chronically-ill youngest son needs to survive. When the somewhat routine trip goes awry, Paxton and his children-now separated-will battle everything in their path to reunite.”
Here’s more on this news from McMurray:
“My company, Buppie Productions, is committed to creating exciting and entertaining content that reflects the Black experience across all genres. BET is an iconic brand that has been at the forefront of creating spaces for Black creators like myself to showcase our talent. I’m proud to partner with BET Studios to bring my unique vision for storytelling to the television landscape. Resonant is the perfect first project for me to kick off my deal with BET. I’m also excited to be working with CBS Studios, Vault Comics and the amazing team at Scott Free Productions to bring the graphic novel to life as a TV series.”
