Fox to Develop 'Headache' Graphic Novel Adaptation From Lisa Joy
Fox is prepared to come of age with Lisa Joy.
The former Burn Notice co-producer is adapting her coming-of-age graphic novel Headache -- about a 23-year-old woman who discovers she’s Athena, the Greek goddess of wisdom and warfare -- for the network.
Each week she must maintain her secret identity while battling a slew of ancient monsters from Greek mythology and searching to uncover which of the other Greek gods is secretly plotting against her to take over Earth.
Joy will write and executive produce the hourlong project, titled Athena, which hails from Chernin Entertainment and 20th Century Fox TV. The former scribe on ABC's Pushing Daisies is repped by UTA and Bloom Hergott.
