DC Comics’ Scalped Heads to Television

Another hit comic book series is headed to the small screen as The Hollywood Reporter today brings word that Jason Aaron and R.M. Guera’s “Scalped” is being developed by the cable network WGN America. First published in 2007, the beginning of the 60-issue series is officially described as follows:

Fifteen years ago, Dashiell “Dash” Bad Horse ran away from a life of abject poverty and utter hopelessness on the Prairie Rose Indian Reservation searching for something better. Now he’s come back home armed with nothing but a set of nunchucs, a hell-bent-for-leather attitude and one dark secret, to find nothing much has changed on “The Rez” — short of a glimmering new casino, and a once-proud people overcome by drugs and organized crime. Is he here to set things right or just get a piece of the action?

Doug Joun (“Banshee”) is attached to script a pilot and to executive produce for Warner Horizon Television.
