EuropaCorp has acquired television rights to Howard Chaykin’s American Flagg! comic series, according to Deadline.  Chaykin, Mark Wheeler and Rick Alexander, and Luc Besson (Valerian) are Executive Producers on the series.  The company is looking for writers and directors for the series. 

The comic series was based on a new property created by Chaykin and published by First Comics beginning in 1983 for some 50 issues.  The first 12 issues were particularly well-received and were reprinted in the late 00s in a new collected edition by Image Comics and Dynamite Entertainment. 

In the American Flagg! world of 2031, the American government has relocated to Mars, the Soviet Union has collapsed from Islamic insurrections, and corporations and government are working together to profit off the population.
