Wes Craven to adapt The Disciples for TV

Before the first issue of The Disciples has even hit the shelves, the comic is being adapted into a Television Show with Wes Craven set to be executive producer on the show according to Hollywood Reporter. The new comic is being released by Black Mask Studios and is the work of Steve Niles known for 30 Days Of Night and Christopher Mitten known for the Wasteland comic. The book with debut this May, here is a synopsis of what to expect;
"Dagmar, Rick, and Jules, intrepid private eyes/bounty hunters, have been hired by a high ranking Senator to retrieve his teenage daughter who’s run off to join a mysterious religious cult. This is no ordinary cult though. In the near future of The Disciples, the ultra-wealthy have become true Masters of the Universe by colonizing moons throughout the solar system. Billionaire industrialist McCauley Richmond is one such colonist: he’s built a new society on Ganymede, a moon of Jupiter, where his flock of cultists can have the religious freedom to worship him. But when the team reaches Ganymede in their Starship Venture, they discover something has gone horribly wrong!"
