“Night Mary” Graphic Novel Being Developed As TV Series
Night Mary – the best-selling graphic novel from IDW Publishing – is currently being developed as a TV series.
According to a recent press release, IDW will develop the project alongside Universal Cable Productions. John Pogue, writer and director of this year’s supernatural thriller The Quite Ones, will write and helm the pilot.
Created by Rick Remender and Kieron Dwyer, Night Mary concerns a young woman – trained to be a lucid dreamer – who enters dreams of patients at a sleep disorder clinic, which happens to be owned by her father.
Upon discovering that one of the patients is a serial killer, the young gal’s nightmares and reality become horrendously intertwined.
“Remender and Dwyer’s Night Mary is a shockingly inventive and ingenious story with mind-bending potential,” said Pogue. “And I’m thrilled to be collaborating with UCP, IDW and Circle to bring this to television. Night Mary explores the next frontier—the human brain—through the dark adventures of a lucid dreamer, and what happens when conspiratorial elements attempt to turn our reality into a living nightmare.”
“It’s very gratifying to see it finding new footing as a television series, ten years after its initial publication, and with such a skilled team at the helm.”
