HACKTIVIST: Alyssa Milano Developing Cyber-Crime Series [The CW]


The CW Working on Alyssa Milano’s Hacktivist TV Series

The CW is looking to team up with Alyssa Milano on a new project. The network is looking to develop a TV series adaptation of the actress’ graphic novel Hacktivist. If the series gets picked up, this would be added to the list of comic book adaptations in their line-up.

According to Deadline, the gritty cyber-drama will be produced by sister channel CBS and BOOM! Studios. Covert Affairs writers Matt Corman and Chris Ord will be in charge of writing for the upcoming series. The pair will also serve as executive producers along with Alyssa Milano, Ross Ritchie, and Stephen Cristy. BOOM! Studios’ Josh Levy will also be involved with the series as a co-executive producer.

Released in 2014, Hacktivist follows Nate Graft and Ed Hiccox, two friends who are social media moguls. The pair creates one of the world’s most popular social networking companies and end up being recruited by the CIA to bring about global and social change. By using their wealth and fame, these two friends go out on covert missions, but not everything is what it seems. As the two characters continue working with the CIA, their thirst for knowledge grows. The duo start questioning whether or not they can trust the federal agency as their working relationship turns into suspicion.

Created by Milano, the series has received some great reviews for it’s first two volumes. There hasn’t been any report on when The CW will release the series if the pilot gets the greenlight. The network will have to get some casting and pre-production done before they start the first episode of the series. It’s also a mystery on whether Milano will star in the show.
