Deadline has broken the story that Image Comic’s Chew is being adapted to become a half hour TV show. The series will be a comedy revolving around the character, Tony Chu; A special agent in a post bird flu world where poultry has been outlawed. Tony has the ability to see the psychic breakdown of any thing he eats. If he eats a hamburger, he can see where the cow grazed. If he eats corn, he can see the pesticides being sprayed on the crops. If he takes a bite out of dead drug dealer on the streets of New York, he can see how he was murdered. I’m sure you can see the appeal this series has for television. Showtime will be producing with Californication’s Stephen Hopkins set to direct the pilot episode. The comic book is written by John Layman and drawn by Rob Guillory.
