Alyssa Milano jumped into the comic industry back in 2014 by creating the graphic novel Hacktivist. The book was written by Jack Lanzing and Colin Kelly, drawn by Marcus To and published by BOOM! Studios. Now the book is being adapted for a CW television series by the creators of Covert Affairs, Matt Corman and Chris Ord.
Hacktivist is about Nate Graft and Ed Hiccox, the co-founders of an popular social networking company who are recruited by the CIA for missions to bring about global change. But Nate and Ed have a deep passion for information freedom that goes against the beliefs of the CIA. Two volumes of the series have been published so far.
This will be a return to the CW for Corman and Ord who worked as showrunners last season for Containment after their five year run on Covert Affairs.
