Let’s face it; as much as we love “Dexter”, the series is just not as sharp as it once was. Blame John Lithgow for a season that could never be topped in terms of quality and intensity. That being said, Showtime has another genre series on the horizon for us.
According to Deadline Showtime has bought a script for Chew, a quirky half-hour cop show based on John Layman and Rob Guillory’s bestselling comic book of the same name.
Stephen Hopkins (The Reaping, Judgement Night, A Nightmare on Elm Street: The Dream Child, Predator 2) is attached to direct and executive produce the project, which hails from Circle of Confusion, the company behind AMC’s hit series adaptation of Robert Kirkman’s “The Walking Dead.”
Terri Hughes Burton and Ron Milbauer wrote the Chew script, which will now be tweaked under Showtime’s guidance. Chew tells the darkly comic story of federal agent Tony Chu, a “cibopath” able to get psychic impression from the things he eats who is assigned to the most unusual and bizarre crimes.
