Deadline reports that Oni Press and its film-production arm Closed on Mondays Entertainment have announced a first-look deal with CBS Television Studios to develop the publisher’s comics for TV.

Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World, the movie based on the Oni series by Bryan Lee O’Malley, opens on Aug. 13. Whiteout, the adaptation of the miniseries by Greg Rucka and Steve Lieber, was released last year.

Several of the publisher’s other titles are in various stages of development — among them, The Return of King Doug, The Damned and Last Call.
