Pilot Ordered: The Sixth Gun

NBC has ordered a pilot based on Oni Press’ "The Sixth Gun" comic book.



Source: NBC Orders a Pilot for The Sixth Gun

 

It was announced yesterday that NBC has ordered a pilot for The Sixth Gun; a comic book series created by Cullen Bunn and Brian Hurtt publisehd by Oni Press.   Carlton Cuse (Lost) produced the pilot and Ryan Condal wrote the script.

No word yet on how badly NBC is going to mess this up and ruin an almost perfect story.  Nor are there any Vegas odds on whether this will be aired before Brian Michael Bendis’ long promised Powers pilot for FX.

Stay tuned to The Outhousers, once called "The greatest website of all space and time" by The Doctor, for any updates.

Until then, we can take solace in that Cullen Bunn, friend of the site, is doing well and that independent creators and publishers are gaining well disserved attention.

If you suck and aren’t reading The Sixth Gun here is the official synopsis from http://www.cullenbunn.com:

 

During the darkest days of the Civil War, wicked cutthroats came into possession of six pistols of otherworldly power. In time, the Sixth Gun, the most dangerous of the weapons, vanished. When the gun surfaces in the hands of an innocent girl, dark forces reawaken. Vile men thought long dead set their sights on retrieving the gun and killing the girl. Only Drake Sinclair, a gunfighter with a shadowy past, stands in their way.

 

So, yea, get on buying that you fools!

After producing so many terrible shows lately, NBC has to get something right eventually...don't they?

I really want to start reading Sixth Gun, I just wish they would release a hardcover collection! I know that the moment I start buying the trades, a hardcover will be announced.

There is no way this will be successful on NBC. This needed to be on AMC, HBO, Starz, FX or Showtime. Whatever happened to this: On July 22, 2011 it was announced that The Sixth Gun will be adapted into a six part mini-series to air on the SyFy channel.

Syfy is part of NBC/Universal, so it could be that's where NBC plans to air it, or it could be they moved it to NBC itself.

Sixth Gun would have a better chance of reaching a larger audience if it were broadcast on NBC instead of SyFy. I'm pretty sure at this point when most people think of SyFy they think of Sharktopus and Piranhaconda instead of shows like Battlestar Galactica or Eureka.

As long as FOX greenlights the Gun Machine series and doesn't f**k it up I'll be happy.

It might have a better chance of reaching a larger audience but it will also have a higher chance of getting cancelled. On NBC it would be lucky to finish out the first season, while on Syfy it would most likely see multiple seasons. I just can't imagine the Sixth Gun being successful on network TV. On network TV people want the same old shit. The show can be much edgier and truer to the comics on cable.

It's a double edged sword really. On one hand, it may have a better chance of reaching multiple seasons on SyFy but on the other hand it may have a larger budget on NBC. The more I think about it, the more I agree with what you said earlier, shows like this should just go to channels like AMC, FX, HBO, or Showtime.
