According to Birth.Death.Movies, one Garth Ennis adaptation isn’t enough for Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg, as after Preacher, the duo – along with Supernatural creator Eric Kripke – will look to shop a TV take on Ennis and artist Darick Robertson’s The Boys to cable networks.
Like Preacher, The Boys is an extremely OTT, violent, and blackly funny series. It focuses on a team of black-ops agents (Billy Butcher, “Wee” Hughie Campbell, The Female, Mother’s Milk, and The Frenchman) who are tasked with keeping the superhero population in check. Unlike most mainstream comics, many of the “heroes” of this world are a horrible bunch; more concerned with fame and hedonism than protecting the public.
The site cautions that it’s still very early days and nothing is set in stone, as Rogen and co. are waiting to see where they can take the show. Obviously a cable channel like HBO is ideal given the depravity of the source material, but if Preacher can work on AMC, anything is possible.
We’ll update if and when more details come out way, but for now, let us know what you think about a potential Boys TV series.
