Zap2it is reporting that Bill Willingham's comic book series Fables has a pilot deal with ABC. The pilot will be written by Raven Metzner and Stu Zicherman (Six Degrees), and directed by Heroes' David Semel. According to the article, this isn't the first attempt to transform this story into must-see TV—NBC and writer Craig Silverstein (Bones) considered it for the 2006-07 development season, but the project wasn't picked up.
Here's hoping that if it does get made, they don't get too crazy with the CGI. I'm all for realistic special effects, but what about characters like that dude who's always putting out his own eyes? I don't need to see that.
