Scalped and Roadside Picnic - Ordered to Pilot by WGN

Thanks to Boris for the heads up.

WGN America has handed pilot orders to two dramas: alien saga Roadside Picnic, based on the StrugatskWGN Americay Brothers’ novel, and Scalped, based on the DC Comics graphic novel, which will feature a predominantly Native American cast. These are the first pilot orders at WGNA, which until now had employed the straight-to-series model. The two pickups come as the network is nearing a second-season renewal of breakout new drama series Outsiders.

Roadside Picnic, an adaptation of one of the most famous novels of top Soviet/Russian science fiction writers Arkady and Boris Strugatsky, was written by Transcendence sAlan Taylor Jack Paglen 2-shotcribe Jack Paglen, with Terminator Genisys and Game of Thrones helmer Alan Taylor attached to direct and Neal Moritz producing. Sony Pictures TV, where the project was originally developed as a spec, is the studio, partnered with Tribune Studios.

Scalped was written by Doug Jung (Banshee) based on the eponymous graphic novel series written by Jason Aaron and illustrated by R.M. Guéra.

Scalped is a modern day crime story set in the world of a Native American Indian reservation, and explores power, loyalty, and spirituality in a community led by the ambitious Chief Lincoln Red Crow, as he reckons with Dashiell Bad Horse who has returned home after years away from the reservation. The project will employ a predominately Native American cast, a first for a television series in recent history.
