Humanoids and WE Prod. are teaming for a live-action Metal Hurlant TV show, Variety reports, based on the material best known here as HEAVY METAL magazine and presented in a Twlight Zone type anthology fashion. The show was shopped around at MIPCom and a first season of 12 episodes will be seen in various European countries such as Italy, Germany, Poland, and Russia. The episodes will be directed by Guillaume Lubrano, and will be shot in French and English, so perhaps a US debut can occur.
