TV Show That Took Off Fables Advertises On The Back Of… Fables TV Show That Took Off Fables Advertises On The Back Of… Fables

Six years ago, Vertigo's hit series Fables was being developed by NBC as an ongoing TV series, but only made it to scripts. In 2008, ABC stated that they had picked up the rights for a TV pilot of Fables. Writers were attached, David Semel was to direct. And then… nothing,

Now ABC are putting on a series called Once Upon A Time. That looks eerily familiar, with fairy tale characters such as Snow White and Prince Charming exiled to the real world, causing a number of people to cry foul.

Not that Warners mind too much, They are certainly letting ABC advertise the show on the back of Vertigo titles such as Fables #109 this month…
