Universal Options "The Wicked + The Divine" for TV Adaptation
Bluewater Productions, fresh off a mention on ABC’s The View for its Female Force: Barbara Walters comic, has announced another comic that virtually guarantees more daytime-television exposure: a biography of popular comedian/talk-show host Ellen DeGeneres.
Set for release in March, Female Force: Ellen DeGeneres aims to chronicle “the highest of highs and the lowest of lows” of her nearly 30-year career, during which time she’s been a comedy-club emcee, stand-up comic, television and movie actress and now, most successfully, the host of an award-winning talk show.
“Ellen DeGeneres is taking the world by storm!” the solicitation reads. “Emmys! Endless accolades! It all seems so easy, but Ellen’s journey to get where she is now was not always a smooth one. She’s felt the highest of highs and the lowest of lows. But through it all, she managed to stay true to herself and prove that she is a female force to be reckoned with!”
The DeGeneres comic, which joins biographies in the Female Force line devoted to figures like Sarah Palin, Princess Diana, JK Rowling and Stephenie Meyer, is written by Sandra C. Ruckdeschel and illustrated by Pedro Ponzo. The cover is by Vinnie Tartamella.
