Drama “Wild Cards”, based on the book series of the same name by George R.R. Martin, is moving from Hulu to Peacock. The planned series was originally in development at Peacock in 201 with Andrew Miller as a writer and executive producer. Miller will not be involved in series on Peacock, which is in search of a new writer. Martin will executive produce along with Melinda Snodgrass and Vince Gerardis. Martin and Snodgrass edit the “Wild Card” books, while Gerardis is Martin’s manager. UCP will produce for Peacock.
The “Wild Cards” logline: an alien pathogen known as the Wild Card virus is released over Manhattan in 1946, altering the course of human history. The virus rewrites DNA, mutating its survivors. A lucky few are granted awe-inspiring superpowers, while the sad majority are left with often repulsive physical deformities.
