There’s a live-action TV adaptation of Jimmy Palmiotti’s QUEEN CRAB in the works at MiLa Media!
Queen Crab follows the adventures of Ginger Drake. She’s a seemingly normal Brooklyn girl. And she also is navigating her way through a life that seems to always be way out of her control. Then her husband pushes her off a boat. And a mysterious underwater encounter leaves her with giant crab claws. As Ginger also struggles to get back to a “normal” life – if that’s even possible -she also tries to exact revenge on those that put her in this position. “Queen Crab” is a timely story about real empowerment, full of twists and turns.
“Queen Crab is an edgy mix of the take-charge attitude of Booksmart, the joyfully unexpected revenge of Promising Young Woman and it’s all served up with the eccentric humor and quirky backdrop of a Carl Hiaasen novel,” said Ohad Ashkenazi, CEO of MiLa Media. “We rarely come across such an original, cool, and timely IP such as Queen Crab. The minute we read the novel we knew it must be introduced to a wide audience”.
“My frequent writing partner Craig Weeden and I are excited to work with the crew at MiLa Media to bring Queen Crab to the screen,” says Palmiotti. “I cannot wait to show the world what we have in store with this original and edgy take exploring the themes of empowerment, revenge, and redemption.”
The series, set in NYC and also Florida’s Everglades, will be produced by Ohad Ashkenazi and also Phil Newsom of MiLa Media.
