THE BOYS Television Series Headed To Premium Cable TV

After teaming to bring Preacher to AMC, Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg will bring another Garth Ennis comic book to TV. Cinemax has greenlit development on a live-action adaptation of The Boys.

After many years of languishing in development hell, a live-action version of The Boys just gained some serious traction. However, unlike previous attempts, the project is headed to television, not the cinema. Seth Rogen, Evan Goldberg and Neal Moritz just successfully shepherded Ennis' Preacher comic series at AMC and they'll look to do the same with The Boys. However, where Preacher will air on basic cable, The Boys will air on subscription TV, meaning there'll be looser requirements from the  FCC.  

Supernatural creator Eric Kripke will also serve as an executive producer.  

Written by Ennis and illustrated by Darick Robertson, The Boys follows an eclectic team of CIA contractors named Billy Butcher, Mother's Milk, 'Wee' Hughie, The Frenchman and The Female or more informally, "the Boys".  In a world where superheroes exist and are very often revealed to be deranged and psychotic, Butcher and his team are tasked with keeping the superhero community in line, sometimes with lethal force.  

Interestingly enough, Cinemax recently picked up Robert Kirkman's Outcast to series, possibly indicating that the premium cable network will become a leader of adult comic book adaptations.
