Deadline.com is reporting that the network Showtime has bought the TV script adaptation of the comic Chew. We have posted on the site previously about the possibility of a forthrcoming adaptation inolving Circle of Confusion (the company behind some show called Walking Dead) and as of right now they are still attached. The script was written by Terri Hughes Burton and Ron Mibauer of Eureka (a show I still have not watched but hear is quite odd, and therefore hopefully befitting).
So what do I think? I think it's surprising that episodes will only be a half hour, I would have expected something meatier (yuk yuk). I also think Showtime is a good home for a book like this. While it's certainly had it's ups and downs, I do love the show Dexter. And Dexter demonstrates to us that Showtime can do violence, which Chew requires is masticatory spades.
But what do you think, iFanbase? Excited? Not yet reading the book? Can't be long till the topic of casting comes up, and we all do love arguing over fake casting.
