Wicked + Divine Comic Becomes TV Series

Universal Television has optioned the rights to Kieron Gillen, Jamie McKelvie and Matt Wilson’s comic “The Wicked + The Divine” with plans to turn it into a TV series.

The story centers on a group of people with superhuman powers known as “The Pantheon” who receive said powers after merging with deities – a process that also greatly reduces their life expectancy.

Matt Fraction and Kelly Sue DeConnick will produce. The comic recently scored three Eisner Award nominations including best new series.
