October 8, 2015

James Tynion IV and Michael Dialynas’ BOOM! Studios series “The Woods,” which follows the students and staff of a prep school after they are transported to another planet, is headed to television. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Universal Cable Productions has secured the rights to adapt the series.

In the series, 437 students, 52 teachers and 24 additional staff members disappear from their preparatory high school in suburban Milwaukee. Transported light years away in the primordial forest of another planet, the stranded school faces danger around every turn.

“The Woods” was Boom!’s best-selling comic of 2014. It continues to be the company’s second most popular comic behind “Lumberjanes,” which is also set to have a film adaptation at Fox.

Boom! Studios’ CEO Ross Richie and President of Development Stephen Christy will executive produce alongside Josh Levy, Senior Vice President of Television.
