Hollywood Daze: Scout Comic’s Wretches
Early this morning Scout Comics put out a press release announcing that their series, Wretches, first published in November of 2019 had been optioned as a one hour series. The Press release can be read in full below.
“May 7th, 2020 — Scout Comics & Entertainment Inc. is proud to announce that WRETCHES, created and written by James E. Roche with line art by Salomon Farias and colors by Chunlin Zhao, is in development as a one-hour sci-fi adventure series by screenwriter Bianca Ursillo, with Andy Cohen of Grade A Entertainment (GIFTED) and Scout Comics attached to executive produce.
Alone on the tough streets of an alien city, far from the lifeless planet they once called home, siblings Shea and Sean spent their youth struggling to survive. Still suffering emotionally from the loss of everything they’d ever known and loved, Shea and Sean have nothing else in the universe but each other. Forever outrunning the horrors of their past, they survive the only way they know how- by hunting and killing sentient robots for profit! Now, when the rough path that they had no chance to follow finally catches up to them, will they be able to keep each other safe or will they lose the only important thing they have left, each other?
Bianca Ursillo holds an MFA in Dramatic Writing from NYU’s Tisch School of Arts, where she received a number of departmental awards. She has worked on such shows as Audience Network’s FULL CIRCLE, AMC’s DISPATCHES FROM ELSEWHERE, and, currently, Neflix’s upcoming ARCHIVE 81.”
Wretches #1 had a regular cover and a New York Comic Con variant. Since the New York Comic Con Variant was released a full month before Diamond distributed the first issue – it should be considered the first appearance of the series.
