Brian K. Vaughan Heads Back To TV With High-Concept Smokers

by  in TV News Comment

Award-winning comics scribe Brian K. Vaughan, who for three seasons was a writer and co-producer of Lost, is returning to television with a Fox series being developed by Sam Raimi and Joshua Donen’s Stars Road Entertainment.

Deadline reports that the hour-long high-concept drama, Smokers, centers on a documentary crew that follows “working-class heroes who exterminate alien threats in deep space.” That, unfortunately, is all the information that’s available.

Smokers is one of three projects in the pipeline from Stars Road; the other two are crime/legal dramas heading to ABC and CBS.

Vaughan is best known in comics circles for the series Ex Machina, Runaways and Y: The Last Man, and the graphic novel Pride of Baghdad.
