Scary Gary optioned for TV series

Great news for Scary Gary creator Mark Buford. His strip was optioned by Jack Black’s production company, Electric Dynamite, and William Morris Entertainment to create a television series based on the strip.

As many of you know getting optioned is the first step. A draft pilot episode will be written and then the episode will be pitched to all the major networks.

Hopefully with Jack Black’s name attached it gains momentum.

Awesome news! SCARY GARY is one of my favorite strips and I’m sure it will be one of my favorite TV shows — as long as Mark is involved.
