Out of Deadline, we found out that Matt Fraction and Kelly Sue DeConnick, the current royal couple of comics, have formed a TV production company called Milkfed Criminal Masterminds and signed a two-year deal with Universal TV to bring the critically-acclaimed Sex Criminals to television. They will also use this same deal to bring other independent properties to television from other creators.
Sex Criminals, by Matt Fraction and Chip Zdarksy, is the story of Suzie and Jon who make plans to rob a bank after they discover they can stop time when they orgasm. They eventually uncover an entire unknown world of people who have similar abilities.
TV EVP Bela Bajaria said, “We’re always excited to usher in fresh voices to the television space, and we couldn’t be more thrilled to partner with Matt and Kelly Sue, a fantastic pair whose award-winning comics are as deeply realized as they are entertaining.”
