Over at Variety, it is being reported that Weta Workshop's Pukeko Pictures has joined with Heavy Metal to turn the Image Comics series "Rat Queens" into an animated television series. To get the pitch ready for TV, Pukeko and Heavy Metal will develop it as 30-minute pilot TV show for potential networks.
John Krelitz at Heavy Metal has described the hit title as:
‘Rat Queens’ is a standout in the marketplace as a diving rod for fangirls, a market as yet untouched by most comics publishers. It is not only perfect for the TV space, but much needed.
As more information becomes known about this new venture, we will follow up to bring the news to you.
