This is the first place I'm sharing the announcement, which you can find in full at Deadline.com:
Fox has put in development Gun Machine, a drama based on the upcoming novel of the same name by top comic book writer Warren Ellis. The TV series adaptation, a thriller about a beleaguered New York City detective who stumbles upon a cache of hundreds of guns that trace back to a wide array of seemingly unrelated unsolved murders, will be written by Trauma creator Dario Scardapane and produced by 20th Century Fox TV and studio-based Chernin Entertainment.
Chernin and the studio made an offer on Gun Machine, which will be published in January by Mulholland Books, sight unseen.
“Chernin and Fox pursued Gun Machine with great passion and intelligence, and I couldn’t be happier to be making this show with them,” Ellis said. He will executive produce the potential TV series with Scardapane, Peter Chernin and Katherine Pope.
