Evil Enrolls at Cartoon Network


Cartoon Network has announced that it optioned Necessary Evil, a monthly comic book series created by Joshua Williamson and Marcus L. Harris and published by Desperado Publishing. The comic book is being developed as a live-action weekly television series.

The television series' writers are Max Burnett, Chris Borelli and Jonathan Davis. Attached to produce the series are Chris Fenton and Chris Cowles of H2F Entertainment, and Brendan Deneen and Jarred Weisfeld of Objective Entertainment.

"Being a part of the Cartoon Network's new programming is an amazing opportunity," said Necessary Evil's co-creator Joshua Williamson. "The writers are doing a terrific job translating the book and the story to the small screen. I think people will be surprised how close the personalities of the characters in the comics are to their live action counterparts."

Deneen said, "As soon as I read the first issue of Necessary Evil, I knew Josh and Marcus had a multi-media hit on their hands. I'm proud to be involved with this piece of material, and I look forward to working on the TV series with this talented group of creators."

The Necessary Evil trades are still available on Amazon.
