George RR Martin has revealed on his website that his sci-fi series Wild Cards has been picked up for TV by Universal Cable Productions.
Martin confirmed that the TV adaptation will be coming soon.
“Development will begin immediately on what we hope will be the first of several interlocking series.”
Wild Cards is a series of science fiction superhero shared universe anthologies, mosaic novels, and solo novels written by a collection of thirty authors. George R.R. Martin edited the series with Melinda M. Snodgrass who he refers to as his right hand man.
Set largely during an alternate history of post-World War II United States, the series follows humans who contracted the Wild Card virus, an alien virus that rewrites DNA and mutates survivors; those who acquire minor or crippling physical conditions are known as Jokers, and those who acquire superhuman abilities are known as Aces.
The first installment was released in 1986 and to date 22 volumes have been released with High Stakes the next volume scheduled for release later this month.
Martin will not be involved in the TV adaptation as he is contracted to HBO for Game of Thrones.
