AMC has optioned the bestselling comic book series Farmhand for television! Rob Guillory created and illustrated the series, and now brings it to AMC/AMC Studios for development. Guillory will write the pilot for the series and will serve as executive producer. He’ll do so alongside LaToya Morgan (The Walking Dead, Into the Badlands).
“I couldn’t be more thrilled to bring Farmhand to AMC,” said Guillory. “I knew if I was ever going to adapt Farmhand, I’d need partners whose bold vision preserved and complemented my own, and I’ve found that with LaToya Morgan and the fine folks at AMC. Their enthusiasm for this project has been absolutely infectious, and I think together we’re going to make a show that is very unique and very special.”
Farmhand comes to AMC
Image Comics’ Farmhand follows Jedidiah Jenkins, a simple farmer, but one whose cash crop isn’t corn or soy. He grows fast-healing, plug-and-play human organs. For years, Jed’s organic transplants have brought healing to many, but deep in the soil of the Jenkins Family Farm something sinister has taken root.
Guillory previously co-created and was the Eisner-award winning artist on the New York Times bestselling series Chew. He is represented by Anonymous Content & Myman Greenspan LLP.
