Deadline is reporting that Amazon Studios has picked up the rights to Brian K. Vaughan and Cliff Chiang’s comic book series Paper Girls and granted a series commitment to a TV adaptation.
Published by Image Comics, Paper Girls follows “four young girls who, while out delivering papers on the morning after Halloween in 1988, become unwittingly caught in a conflict between warring factions of time-travelers, sending them on an adventure through time that will save the world. As they travel between our present, the past, and the future — they encounter future versions of themselves and now must choose to embrace or reject their fate.”
Stephany Folsom (Toy Story 4) is writing the script for the Paper Girls series, and will executive produce alongside Vaughn, while Legendary Entertainment and Brad Pitt’s Plan B are producing.
Paper Girls becomes the second of Vaughn’s comic titles in development as a TV series, with FX working on an adaptation of Y: The Last Man, which recently found itself a new showrunner and is being targeted for a 2020 premiere.
