Over at Entertainment Weekly, the Ausiello Files have uncovered a “super secret” project that sounds all too familiar:
“former Lost executive producers Edward Kitsis and Adam Horowitz are developing a fairy-tale-themed drama series. Oh, and they’re getting a little help from—stop me if you’ve heard of this guy—Damon Freakin’ Lindelof!”
Because in December of 2008, it was mentioned that Vertigo’s Fables would be adapted for television at ABC (after an initial fly-by at NBC). Now, we haven’t heard much come from the project, until possibly now. The only question is, is this the proposed Fables adaption, or something in the same vein of the beloved comic series?
I’d like to think it is (perusing the message boards of the story, I’m not the only one). Especially with the notion that he will have a female lead. So is this Fables? Magic 8-ball says “all signs point to yes”. While Ausiello instantly calls for Sarah Michelle Gellar, I don’t simply see her as Snow White…Rose Red, on the other hand…
So, readers, who would you like to see in the cast of TV’s Fables? And do you think it could have a shot at massive popularity?
