Beau Smith Announces “Wynonna Earp” Optioned For Television

Great news via Herald Dispatch, about Beau Smith’s created characters Wynonna Earp and Cobb, optioned for television. We at C4S find this news móre then exciting!

wynonna-earp1“Wynonna Earp,” about a descendent of the legendary Wyatt Earp who investigates supernatural cases, and “Cobb” a story about a soldier and for­mer Secret Service agent, have both been optioned for televi­sion .

“Both ‘Wynona Earp’ and ‘Cobb’ have been optioned by IDW Entertainment,” Smith said. “IDW Entertainment is a new branch of IDW Publishing and IDW Works.

Of the two properties Smith says that “Wynona Earp” is fur­ther along. IDW will be partner­ing up with another TV studio for the show. Smith describes the series as being a supernatu­ral western.

“Wynona is a member of the U.S. Marshals’ Black Badge Division which was started by Teddy Roosevelt,” Smith said. “Whereas standard US Marshals hunt fugitives from the law, members of the Black Badge Division go after super­natural criminals.

The attraction of ‘Wynona Earp’ has been this hierarchy of paranormal organized crime system where you have Immortals and Vampires at the top levels , zombies at the bottom, and all kids of creatures in between. At conventions that’s where I get the most questions. Fans always want to know the ‘Sopranos’ side of the story. I think that would be a big attraction to a lot of TV viewers.
