Scout Comics & Entertainment Inc. is proud to announce that HENCHGIRL by Kristen Gudsnuck is now in development as a live action television series with screenwriter Alex Ebel attached to adapt.
Ebel is a genre-blending dramedy writer currently staffed on the upcoming Nickelodeon series ARE YOU AFRAID OF THE DARK. Previously, she was a writer on the SyFy Network series DEADLY CLASS and BLOOD DRIVE. On the film side, Ebel recently finished a psychological thriller for MarVista Entertainment entitled MOTHER OF ALL EVIL. She is currently adapting a feature rom-com from a New Yorker article about the first Tindr hookup in Antarctica. Ebel got her start in TV as a writer on VH1’s POP UP VIDEO. HENCHGIRL, written and drawn by Gudsnuck, is the story of Mary Posa, who hates her job. She works long hours for little pay, no insurance, and, worst of all, no respect. Her coworkers are jerks and her boss doesn't appreciate her. He also happens to be a supervillain. Cursed with a conscience, Mary would give anything to be something other than a Henchgirl! Gudsnuk is the co-creator and illustrator of the comic MODERN FANTASY with Rafer Roberts, illustrator of the VIP series by Jen Calonita, from Little Brown, and creator of the Indie Bound Bestselling graphic novel series MAKING FRIENDS, from Scholastic, with the sequel MAKING FRIENDS: BACK TO THE DRAWING BOARD out this July.
