According to The Hollywood Reporter, Fox will be bringing the Boom! Studios comic book series Unthinkable to life as a TV series. Former “24” showrunner Howard Gordon will write the series with Drive‘s Ben Queen serving as the executive producer.
Written by Mark Sable and drawn by Julian Totinoere, here’s the official description of the comic: “They’ve been hired to think the UNTHINKABLE. But what happens when the unthinkable actually happens? After 9-11, best-selling author Alan Ripley joins a government think tank consisting of the most imaginative minds in diverse fields. Their job? Think of nightmare scenarios and crippling terrorist attacks so the government can safeguard against them. But what happens when the think tank folds, and the attacks start to happen?”
