Big news for the Oni Press cult hit.
We've reported previously on Oni Press's The Sixth Gun's quest to make it onto the small screen. Today, it jumped an important hurdle as NBC officially moved the project into development, with Carlton Cuse, formerly of LOST, acting as showrunner for the series. A script will be written by Ryan Condal, who is also developing Hercules: The Thracian Wars, another project adapted from a comic book. The series had previously been looked at as a SyFy miniseries, but it appears that NBC has larger plans for the book.
While the show making it to television is still a bit away, it's good to see the project not fade into the background like so many other comic book projects recently. Here's to hoping that Cuse and Condal do Cullen Bunn and Brian Hurtt's fantastic comic book justice and that NBC will want to give the series a shot.
