The highly acclaimed and revered futuristic action anime Cowboy Bebop has a new live-action TV series in the works
A joint production venture from ITV Studios and Marty Adelstein announced a production company named Tomorrow Studios. ITV Studios is Great Britain’s largest television production company that has produced shows such as: Coronation Street, Emmerdale, Heartbeat, Marple and Agatha Christie’s Poirot, Brainiac: Science Abuse, ‘I’m a Celebrity…Get Me Out of Here!
Christopher Lee Yost, best known for his work as the head writer for The Avengers: Earth’s Mightiest Heroes, and other Marvel titles has been announced as the writer for the adaptation.
Marty Adelstein has been announced as the executive producer of the series and has Prison Break, Tru Calling, Aquarius, and Last Man Standing under his belt.
So far, not much is known if the live-action series will stray away from the story-line of the anime, so all we can do is wait to see for more upcoming teasers.
Cowboy Bebop is a story about a group of space-ship bounty hunters who team up to take in fugitives for cash. During their encounter, the characters Spike Speigel, Jet, Faye Valentine, and Ed find themselves in an intergalactic adventure that spans the galaxy. The continuous story line, character arcs, unique jazz motifs, and high energy pacing has made Cowboy Bebop one of the highest ranked Anime series of all time.
