Amazon Orders Drama Paper Girls

Series Based on the Best-Selling Graphic Novel Series

Amazon Studios has ordered the new series “Paper Girls” from Legendary Television in association with Plan B, based on the best-selling graphic novel series by comic book and television writer Brian K. Vaughan and artist Cliff Chiang. The logline: “Paper Girls” follows four young girls who, while out delivering papers on the morning after Halloween in 1988, become unwittingly caught in a conflict between warring factions of time-travelers, sending them on an adventure through time that will save the world. As they travel between our present, the past, and the future — they encounter future versions of themselves and now must choose to embrace or reject their fate.

The executive producers on “Paper Girls” are Stephany Folsom, Christopher Cantwell, and Christopher C. Rogers, who will also serve as co-showrunners; Brian K. Vaughan and Cliff Chiang are also executive producers. No casting has been announced at present.
