Fraction & DeConnick Sign Deal With Universal TV, SEX CRIMINALS Adaptation Planned
Writers Matt Fraction (Sex Criminals, Hawkeye) and Kelly Sue DeConnick (Bitch Planet, Captain Marvel), the well known married power couple in comics, have signed a two year deal with Universal TV. The deal includes adaptations of comic books as well as original TV series concepts.
“We’re always excited to usher in fresh voices to the television space, and we couldn’t be more thrilled to partner with Matt and Kelly Sue, a fantastic pair whose award-winning comics are as deeply realized as they are entertaining,” said Universal TV EVP Bela Bajaria.
Eisner and Harvey Award-winning comic Sex Criminals, created by Fraction and Chip Zdarsky, is set to be the first adaptation under the Uni TV deal along with Fraction and DeConnick’s Milkfed Criminal Masterminds production company. MCM will also be used as a TV launchpad for other comic creators’ IP with their expansion into TV.
