Fox To Adapt Graphic Novel HEADACHE For Television As ATHENA

Lisa Joy's graphic novel Headache is heading to the small screen under the name of Athena. It focuses on a young woman who discovers that she is a Greek goddess (yeah, you guessed it - she's Athena) and battles ancient monsters from Greek mythology. Read on for details!

Deadline reports that Fox have picked up the rights to Athena, a drama from writer Lisa Joy (Pushing Daisies) which is based on her graphic novel, Headache. The site describes it as, "a coming-of-age drama about a 23 year-old woman who discovers she’s Athena, the Greek goddess of wisdom and warfare. Each week she must maintain her secret identity while battling a slew of ancient monsters from Greek mythology and searching to uncover which of the other Greek gods is secretly plotting against her to take over the Earth." An interesting premise, eh? Joy will write the pilot and also executive produce alongside Peter Chernin (Rise of the Planet of the Apes) and Katherine Pope (New Girl, Terra Nova).
