“Arrow” and “Torchwood” actor John Barrowman is developing an event mini-series adaptation of “The 49th Key,” Erika Lewis’ story from a recent issue of fantasy comic magazine Heavy Metal .
The story is based on the 16th century legend of Enochian magic, which tells of a secret language of angels, and is the first chapter in an expansive serialized fantasy series.
It follows a rogue archeologist and a young mute autistic boy on a treacherous journey through England. The boy is the key to a gateway between our world and that of a magical society that exists below the Earth’s surface.
Barrowman will executive produce and star while Jeff Krelitz and David Boxenbaum will also executive produce.
