Deadline is reporting the critically acclaimed and Eisner nominated Image Comics series The Wicked + The Divine is being developed for television by Matt Fraction and Kelly Sue DeConnick who are producing it for Universal Television through their Milkfed Criminal Masterminds. Created by Kieron Gillen and Jamie McKelvie, the series follows twelve human incarnate gods who have a limited time on Earth.
Every ninety years, twelve gods incarnate as humans. They are loved. They are hated. In two years, they are dead. The team behind critical tongue-attractors like “Young Avengers” and “Phonogram” reunite to create a world where gods are the ultimate pop stars and pop stars are the ultimate gods. But remember: just because you’re immortal, doesn’t mean you’re going to live forever.
