Good Shows You Might Never Watch

Found out today that ABC is developing a pilot to adapt Vertigo comics’ series ‘Fables.’  ‘Fables’ is about fairy tale and folklore characters living secretly in New York City after being banished from their homelands. The book has a great balance of adventure/noir/intrigue and an irreverent sense of humor about the supernatural concept that reminds me of Joss Whedon.  If anything comes of the show, expect it to be the Life on Mars of Fall 2009– scrappy NYC procedural with insane twist — and then tune in and watch it.   I fully support any trend that gets more Vertigo titles adapted for the screen. Where is my Y: The Last Man premium cable series?
