Jeff Lemire‘s comic book series Sweet Tooth is getting a series adaptation ordered by Hulu with Stake Land‘s Jim Mickle set to write and direct.
Set in a post-apocalyptic world inhabited by human/animal hybrids, the comic made its debut back in 2009 via Vertigo Entertainment.
The coming-of-age tale centers on Gus, who is half boy, half deer. Gus leaves home only to discover that the world has been ravaged by a cataclysmic event. He meets and joins a family of hybrids and humans searching to find answers about what happened to the world, ultimately discovering a conspiracy that will force Gus to question his very own existence.
Sweet Tooth is from Robert Downey Jr. and Susan Downey’s Team Downey banner along with Hap and Leonard co-creator Jim Mickle and Warner Bros. TV.
