Graphic novel Y: The Last Man is set for the small screen after FX ordered a pilot.
Here’s a rundown of the series:
Written by Brian K. Vaughan (Lost, EX MACHINA), this is the saga of Yorick Brown–the only human survivor of a planet-wide plague that instantly kills every mammal with a Y chromosome. Accompanied by his pet monkey, Yorick searches for his lost love…and the answer to why he’s the last man on earth.
The comic ran for 60 issues published by DC and won three Eisner awards a major accolade in the comics industry.
Michael Green (American Gods) and Aida Mashaka Croal (Luke Cage) will be co-showrunners of the project should it get a series order.
