Hopefully, if DMZ decides not to go, SyFy won't behave boorishly at a convention the next day.
Brian Wood's hit Vertigo comic DMZ is reportedly feeling cautiously optimistic after receiving an invitation from SyFy to become a television adaptation. All the series has do is accompany SyFy up to its hotel room, where SyFy insists it will discuss the TV deal, just like DMZ wants.
"I think SyFy may be genuinely interested in me as a marketable property," said DMZ, despite admitting that SyFy seemed "kind of drunk" and had been making inappropriate sexual advances toward the cult-favorite comic series in the lobby for hours. DMZ told us that it had interacted with SyFy on more than one occasion on social media, and cited SyFy's reputation as a company that is known for making TV shows as reasons to trust the television network despite its poor behavior.
Provided DMZ plays along and doesn't cause any trouble, the series will be written by former Mad Men executive producers Andre and Maria Jacquemetton, according to a report from Deadline. On the other hand, it will be on SyFy, and so will probably star Judd Nelson and Tara Reid and have roughly the same production budget of... well, actually, SyFy is the benchmark for low production budgets so there's not really any good comparison here.
We'd like it to be known that, whether a deal is eventually struck or not, we feel this type of behavior is very unprofessional for a television network, and we hope SyFy learns to treat potential development properties with more respect in the future.
