Criminal - Series Based on Comic Books in Development at Amazon

Share on Reddit

Amazon Studios is finalizing deals for Criminal, a TV adaptation of Ed Brubaker and artist Sean Phillips’ bestselling crime comic book series, sources tell Deadline.

Details are scarce, but the project — written by Brubaker, who serves as executive producer and showrunner — is described as an interlocking universe of crime stories based on his award-winning comics. I hear a writers room for the potential series is up and running. A rep for Amazon Studios declined comment.

“Criminal tells the interweaving saga of several generations of families tied together by the crimes and murders of the past,” Brubaker explained to Deadline in a 2019 interview. “And one of the big events in many of these characters’ pasts, which has been referenced since the very first Criminal story, was the death of Teeg Lawless. Before we even met Teeg, we knew that he had died when his son was a teenager, but other than the identity of his killer, we have never told the rest of that story. It’s just been a ghost haunting the series, as Teeg Lawless has become one of the most popular characters in the comic.”
