Another day, another comics in Hollywood deal! But this one’s all in the family, as it’s been announced that Warner Bros. TV is developing MEMOIR by Ben McCool and Nikki Cook, as announced in Publishers Marketplace. The deal was negotiated by Angela Cheng Caplan at the Cheng Caplan Company. McCool writes:
MEMOIR is about a small Midwestern town where one morning everybody wakes up with no idea who they are, where they are, or what’s happened. The whole town’s memory has been erased. All except for one man… He remembers EVERYTHING.
According to McCool, he and Cook have always felt that “the potential to tell stories in the MEMOIR universe was abundant, so with a bit of luck there’ll be plenty more of them coming soon.”
Published by Image Comics, MEMOIR’s 5th issue is imminent, as shown by the cover above.
