Back in January, FX CEO John Landgraf told TV Guide he was optimistic about the potential for a Y: The Last Man television series. It seems that optimism was well-founded as the network has ordered a pilot based on the comic book series by Brian K. Vaughan and Pia Guerra.
The pilot will be directed by Melina Matsoukas, whose previous work includes music videos for Beyoncé and Rihanna. She fits the as Y: The Last Man is about a world run by women. Michael Green (American Gods, Blade Runner 2049, Logan) and Aida Mashaka Croal (Luke Cage, Turn) are set to serve as co-showrunners.
