"Heroes" Creator To Adapt Black Mask Series "Mayday" for Television

Black Mask Studios' "Mayday" may have only arrived in comic book stores this week, but the series has already turned heads in Hollywood.

Just a day after the series by Curt Pires and Chris Petersen debuted, Imperative Entertainment, which is headed up by "Heroes" creator Tim Kring, announced it has optioned the television rights.

PREVIEW: Black Mask Studios' "Mayday" #1

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the production company will develop the comic for television. Kring will executive produce alongside Dan Friedkin, Bradley Thomas and Zak Kadison and Black Mask's Brett Gurewitz and Matt Pizzolo.

Here's the comic's official description: "A washed-up, drug-addicted screenwriter and a transgender bartender stumble onto a Satanic cult's plan to sacrifice people all across LA (geomapped in the form of a pentagram, of course) and bring on Armageddon. As our intrepid, damaged heroes embark on a suicide mission to stop the crazy cultists, even they wonder if this is all really happening or if they're just plain crazy. Probably both. The latest project from Curt Pires sees him teaming with art sensation Chris Peterson for a story that cuts to the very center of Hollywood mythology and depravity itself."
