Jeff Lemire’s GIDEON FALLS Hits TV

Jeff Lemire and Andrea Sorrentino’s Image Comics hit Gideon Falls will be developed for television, according to The Hollywood Reporter.


Hivemind acquired the rights to develop the title into an hour-long drama series, for which the writers will serve as executive producers.

In Gideon Falls, the lives of a reclusive young man obsessed with a conspiracy in the city’s trash, and a washed-up Catholic priest arriving in a small town full of dark secrets, become intertwined around the mysterious legend of The Black Barn, an otherworldly building that is alleged to have appeared in both the city and the small town, throughout history, bringing death and madness in its wake.

Gideon Falls is one of the most inventive stories in comics today, colliding a psychologically complex and intellectually nuanced cast against a stark and terrifying terrain of science fiction and horror,” Hivemind Co-President Dinesh Shamdasani said in a statement. “It’s no surprise that it comes from the brilliant minds of two of the most talented creators in the comics medium – Jeff Lemire and Andrea Sorrentino – or that it sparked a massive multi-studio bidding war.”
