The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen is getting another adaptation. Fox announced today that it has made a put pilot commitment for a drama series iteration of Alan Moore’s graphic novel series. “Put pilot” means that the network pays a penalty if the pilot for League never airs, so it’s nearly guaranteed that this thing will make it to airwaves. The new TV show is officially described thusly:
“A drama series based on Alan Moore’s critically and commercially successful graphic novel series about a group of Victorian-age literary characters, including Captain Nemo, the Invisible Man, and Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, who team up to fight a common enemy.”
The source material was previously adapted by Fox for a live-action feature film starring Sean Connery, but we all know how that dreadful 2003 film turned out. Hit the jump for more on the proposed League TV series.
