“American Virgin” could be the next Steven T. Seagle co-creation to be adapted into another medium. In a new interview with CBR focusing on the Oscar win for “Big Hero 6,” which Seagle co-created at Marvel with his Man of Action cohort Duncan Rouleau, Seagle revealed that he’s working on a pilot for “American Virgin,” the Becky Cloonan-illustrated Vertigo series he wrote from 2006 to 2008.
“My main focus and interest via the Man of Action of it all, is hour drama TV,” Seagle said. “I’ve got two shows based on my comics that I’ve been working on with Left Bank Pictures in London — very deep in one, getting deeper in the other. I’ve written an original pilot I’m about to take out, and next I’m working on a pilot for ‘American Virgin,’ now that all the rights have reverted to Becky Cloonan and me.”
“American Virgin” told the story of Adam, a Christian preacher confronted with multiple challenges to his faith. The series ran for 23 issues.
