IM Global and Platinum Studios will develop D.J. Coffman’s “Hero by Night” into a live-action TV series, says The Hollywood Reporter.
“Hero,” which won Platinum’s 2006 Comic Book Challenge competition, tells the story of young landlord Jack King, who uncovers the lair of the title character. Determined to make some extra cash, Jack auctions the Hero’s journal on eBay, raising the ire of a dormant madman.
IM Global will represent worldwide distribution and produce the adventure series for young adults through its IM Global Television banner headed by Gavin Reardon. Platinum CEO Scott Mitchell Rosenberg, IM Global’s Stuart Ford, Rigberg Entertainment’s Glenn Rigberg and Reardon are set to executive produce. Platinum film and TV vp Rich Marincic will co-produce, and Greenberg Group’s Randy Greenberg will co-exec produce.
