Universal Television Picks Up Lost City Explorers For TV

We mentioned Zack Kaplan mentioning some of his books being optioned in the back of Aftershock Comics Lost City Explorers a few weeks back. Now, Lost City Explorers is being picked up for TV.

Lost City Explorers #1 from Aftershock Comics came out last month. Deadline.com is reporting that Universal Television has optioned the comic for a television show. From Deadline:

Zack Kaplan’s The Lost City Explorers is headed to the small screen. AfterShock Comics, in partnership with Kaplan, is teaming with Universal Television to develop a series adaptation of the sci-fi comic.

Written by Kaplan, with art by Alvaro Sarraseca and colors from Dee Cunniffe, The Lost City Explorers is focused on a group of teens who become underground urban explorers after a mysterious expedition leads to the disappearance of one of their fathers. Following his tracks on a coming-of-age journey through subterranean tunnels, they ultimately find the holy grail of lost cities, Atlantis, buried right under New York City.

Kaplan also will serve as an executive producer, along with Lee Kramer and Jon Kramer from AfterShock Media.
