Amazon Developing East of West, Transhuman Series with Jonathan Hickman

Amazon Studios is developing Jonathan Hickman's East of West and Transhuman as hourlong dramas for the streaming service.

According to Deadline, Hickman himself will write the adaptation of East of West, though there's no one currently slated to adapt Transhuman. Both series will be executive produced by Robert Kirkman and Skybound Entertainment, who have a first-look deal with Amazon Studios. Artists Nick Dragotta (East of West) and J.M. Ringuet (Transhuman) will also serve as producers on the two projects.

"Nick, J.M. and I couldn’t be more excited to be working with Skybound and Amazon," Hickman said. "We feel very strongly about each project and couldn’t be more appreciative of how far both companies have gone to make us feel welcome. We look forward to doing the work and hopefully doing it well."

First released in 2013, East of West is set in a dystopian future and follows Death, one of the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse, on a quest for vengeance. Transhuman, which Hickman and Ringuet published in 2008, is set in a future in which corporations compete to genetically engineer and enhance humans. Both comics were originally published by Image.
