Warren Ellis To Adapt El Pantera For UCP TV

el-pantera-170-gAfter announcing a deal with Dark Horse yesterday, Universal Cable Productions had more up its sleeve including Warren Ellis adapting the 1970's Mexican comic El Pantera for television. The series takes place on a city on the US – Mexico border where a young officer is made Head of Police and gets his best friend released from prison (he was of course wrongly accused). The two then create the vigilante El Pantera to ride the town of the Mexican mob.

Also announced were adaptations of the British cult films The Machine as a series for SyFy written by Caradog James and the IDW comic Kill Shakespeare with creators Anthony Del Col and Conor McCreery set to write.
