NBC Developing Oni Press Graphic Novel GHOST PROJEKT
NBC passed earlier this year on Oni Press' Sixth Gun but the Peacock Network and comic book publisher are trying again with Joe Harris and Steve Rolston Cold War fallout graphic novel.
Deadline Hollywood reports that NBC is moving forward with another Oni Press title, Ghost Projekt. Previously, NBC made a pilot for The Sixth Gun but ultimately decided to pass on producing a full fledged season. John Glenn and André Øvreda will write the show which follows "an American UN weapons inspector and a Russian FSB agent who are forced to team up to chase a group of thieves before they end up spreading dangerous supernatural material stolen from an old abandoned Soviet weapons lab."
Øvreda will also direct the pilot and serve as an executive producer alogn with Glenn, Eric Gitter and Noah Greenshner. Oni Press' Joe Nozemack & James Lucas Jones are listed as producers.
|Russia is often remembered from the shadow cast during the Cold War-era when every stranger was a spy, but now that the Cold War is long over, some things left behind from that era may not stay lost. An abandoned Soviet research facility somewhere in Siberia has been home to a strange and dangerous weapon that is now in the hands of thieves claiming it for their own. U.S. weapons inspector Will Haley has been assigned to find out what dangers the weapon poses and with the help of Russian agent Anya Romanova they will find the answers, but it will be far from easy.|
