Hulu Orders Pilot for Supernatural Hero Drama from Alfonso Gomez-Rejon

Hulu is in talks with "Me and Earl and the Dying Girl" director Alfonso Gomez-Rejon for "Citizen," a supernatural hero drama. According to The Hollywood Reporter, "Citizen" will "blend elements of magical realism and gritty vigilantism" together in a "supernaturalized" Los Angeles.

Gomez-Rejon co-created the project with "Blood and Oil's" Josh Pate and Nicholas Schutt. Hulu is nearing a deal to pick up a pilot for the series, which hails from Paramount Television and Anonymous Content and is described as "a fresh take" on superhero origin stories.

Together, Gomez-Rejon, Pate and Schutt will write the pilot script as well as executive produce the series. Anonymous Content's David Kanter, Matt DeRoss and Steve Golin will also serve as executive producers.
