FX Orders Y Drama Pilot Based On Y: The Last Man Comic Book Series
by Nellie Andreeva
FX has given a pilot green light to drama Y, based on the acclaimed
post-apocalyptic science fiction DC comic book series Y: The Last Man.
The project, from Michael Green (American Gods, Blade Runner 2049),
had been in the works at FX for several years. Green, who penned the
adaptation, will serve as co-showrunner alongside Aida Mashaka Croal
(Luke Cage, Turn). Melina Matsoukas (Insecure) will direct the pilot,
which is from FX Productions.
In Y, all of the men are dead. But one. Based on the DC comic book
series by Brian K. Vaughan and Pia Guerra, Y traverses a world of
women exploring gender, race, class and survival.
