The Fables graphic novel is one of the new Greats, on par with Y: The Last Man and The Walking Dead. It tells the story of a group of fairy tale characters that are forced out of their homeland and into the real world of New York City. Snow White is the de facto leader of this group, and the Big Bad Wolf is a detective. Very exciting stuff, all around.
What does this have to do with anything? Adam Horowitz and Edward Kitsis, exec producers and writers on Lost, as well as the writers of Tron:Legacy, have sold a pilot script to ABC. Let me know if this sounds familiar:
[A] mix of sci-fi and fantasy with a strong mystery element. [The] premise is a modern-day take on fairy tales, with a female protagonist who comes from a unique background.
I hope they’re ready for an angry call from Vertigo.
