The pilot will be a one-hour fantasy/ horror drama of the beloved comic book series written by Joe Hill (The Fireman) with art from Gabriel Rodriguez (Little Nemo). The project coming from IDW Entertainment will be overseen by show runner Carlton Cuse (Lost, Bates Motel) along with director Scott Derrickson (Doctor Strange).
