On the development front, bestselling comic book series, Farmhand has been optioned for television development by AMC/AMC Studios. 

Comic book creator and illustrator, Rob Guillory is attached to write the pilot, and will executive produce alongside LaToya Morgan. 


"I couldn’t be more thrilled to bring Farmhand to AMC,” said Guillory.

"I knew if I was ever going to adapt Farmhand, I’d need partners whose bold vision preserved and complemented my own, and I’ve found that with LaToya Morgan and the fine folks at AMC."

"Their enthusiasm for this project has been absolutely infectious, and I think together we’re going to make a show that is very unique and very special."

Farmhand follows Jedidiah Jenkins, a simple farmer, but one whose cash crop isn’t corn or soy.

He grows fast-healing, plug-and-play human organs. For years, Jed’s organic transplants have brought healing to many, but deep in the soil of the Jenkins Family Farm something sinister has taken root.
