Seriable Bites are stories and tidbits from the world of serialized TV that didn’t quite make the front page of Seriable.com over the past few days.
On the menu today: 100 Bullets, American Gods, Anansi Boys, Terra Nova, Sons Of Anarchy, Ringer, Boardwalk Empire, Mad Men and Justified.
David Goyer is attached to write and executive produce an adaptation of the comic book series 100 Bullets for Showtime based on the Eisner and Harvey Award-winning comic book that published 100 issues between 1999 and 2009. 100 Bullets is described as:
“If you could get away with murdering the person who ruined your life, would you do it?”
100 Bullets hinges on the question of whether people would take the chance to get away with revenge. The mysterious Agent Graves approaches someone who has been the victim of a terrible wrong. Graves gives them the chance to set things right by providing them a handgun, the eponymous 100 bullets, and documentation of the person primarily and personally responsible for the recipient’s woes. He informs the candidate that the bullets are completely untraceable, and any law enforcement investigation that uncovers one of these bullets will immediately stop.
AMERICAN GODS & ANANSI BOYS
Neil Gaiman talks about the adaptation of his American Gods novel and the prospective TV miniseries adaptation of Anansi Boys.
“The first season would essentially be the first book, with a few interesting divergences, because you don’t want people who have read the book [to know everything that's going to happen]“. Anansi Boys [will probably be] a TV mini series if it happens.”
Director Jon Cassar tweeted this photo of the Terra Nova set at night. Writer/producer Paul Grellong added that “Something jaw-dropping happens at this location in Ep 4. Stay tuned.” Sounds like a dino might be involved.
SONS OF ANARCHY
SOA creator Kurt Sutter has posted a Season 4 update on his blog:
So far, the new season feels very potent. We’re back in Charming, we’re out of jail and we’re making money. With that upswing, comes all the complications that success and power bring. Season four is all about the club. The personalities, the history, the alliances, the conflicts — the inside dynamics of an organized outlaw enterprise. Ego, greed, violence and fear reign supreme. I’m halfway through the cut of 401 and it’s pretty fucking badass.
