[TV] Showtime Passes on Chew Posted by Jeremy Thomas on 02.01.2013
Comic book adaptation not heading to TV...
Showtime has passed on an adaptation of the Image comic book Chew. The network was reportedly "going back and forth" on the series a couple of weeks ago according to artist Rob Guillory, but writer John Layman posted today to his Twitter:
There will not be a CHEW TV series on Showtime.
The comic series focused on Tony Chu, a "cibopath" with the supernatural ability to gain a psychic impression of an object by eating it. Ken Leung (LOST) had been in discussions for the role.
