With Marvel striking a deal with ABC (and assigning Joss Whedon to manage it) to develop a superhero a live action TV show for the network, it seems that NBC want in on the deal but it seems like they’re intent on going in a different direction. A supervillain direction.
Hench is an outstanding supervillain-themed comic book centered around regular joe by the name of Mike Fulton, who hires himself out to supervillains as a henchman (hence the title, duh!) in order to support his family. However, when faced with a terrible choice that could mean death for heroes, villains, his family and himself he wonders just how his life got so crazy. Awesome.
The series is set to be penned by ‘Silent Witness’ writer Alexandra Cunningham and will be produced by Peter Berg.
