Fans of Jason Aaron's superb Scalped will be happy to learn that a TV series based on the comic is in development at WGN America, with Geoff Johns on board as EP. More past the jump...

According to THR, DC Vertigo's 2007 comic series Scalped, by Jason Aaron and illustrator R.M. Guera, has been picked up for a pilot order by WGN America. Geoff Johns will executive produce the crime drama, which was was partly inspired by the 1975 arrest of Native American activist Leonard Peltier, who was charged with the murder of two FBI agents in a reservation shootout the same year.

For those unfamiliar with the story, here's the offcial logline for the show:


"Scalped presents a modern-day crime story set in the world of a Native American Indian reservation, exploring power, loyalty and spirituality in a community led by the ambitious Chief Lincoln Red Crow as he reckons with Dashiell Bad Horse, who has returned home after years away from the reservation."

Doug Jung (Banshee, Dark Blue) will pen the Scalped pilot, and will also executive produce alongside Johns.
