The recently-announced IDW Entertainment has gotten a hold of another comic-based TV project and Deadline reports it is none other than Michael Chiklis’ comic series “Pantheon.” Originally created by Chiklis, Anny Simon Beck and Marc Andreyko, Pantheon will be developed internally at IDW with Circle of Confusion co-producing and overseeing packaging and creative. The two companies will then shop the project around to networks, but for now the search is on for a showrunner to co-create the series along with Chiklis.
Originally published in 2010, Pantheon is officially described as follows: The series pits Zeus’s fellow gods against the Titans in an epic battle of good versus evil, and father versus son. Breaking the golden rule of Greek mythology – to never reveal themselves – the gods Zeus, Aphrodite, Pandora, Cronus, Prometheus and Jason return to their timeless battles, as Armageddon nears.
Pantheon isn’t the only greek-myth-based-comic book headed for television as Fox is developing Lisa Joy’s graphic novel Headache as a drama titled Athena as well.
