ABC Orders Pilot For DC Comics ‘Fables’

The popular comic book series Fables from DC Comics and writer Bill Willingham is now looking to find a new home at ABC, who has ordered up a pilot episode to test the waters with.

The pilot will be written by Stu Zicherman and Raven Metzner, who wrote Elektra and episodes of Six Degrees. TV mega-director David Semel will do the directing. His resume is riddled with well-known products such as Buffy, Angel, Heroes, House, 90210 (old), Dawson’s Creek, and 7th Heaven among many others. The man seems to have a tag for directing pilot episodes and as you can see, whether it’s the realm of sci-fi/fantasy or teeny dramas, he’s captained some really popular shows.

For those who aren’t familiar with the comic, Fables takes pretty much every single cherished fairy tale character ever concocted and puts them in our world. They live and work among us, residing in a special section of the city (unless they’re a creature or talking animal, in which case they have to live at “The Farm”). The two main characters used in the comics are Big Bad Wolf and Snow White, and it seems that this will be the formula used for the TV show as well.
