Source: Deadline

Howard Chaykin's American Flagg! has been acquired for television by EuropaCorp, the company behind Luc Besson's failed Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets adaptation.

American Flagg! is a satirical look at a high-tech consumerist future in which the U.S. government has relocated to Mars and left the nation's Earth-bound populace to be governed by the all-encompassing corporation, "The Plex." The saga's hero, Reuben Flagg, is a former TV star with a naive understanding of the American dream who is drafted into law enforcement in an utterly corrupt, shopping mall-like Chicago.

First published in 1983, American Flagg! is a cornerstone of the '80s American independent comics scene.
